The Mission and Ministry committee is starting early on our Operation Christmas Child Shoebox mission again this year. As a congregation we would love to collect enough supplies and donations to fill a minimum of 100 boxes.
If anyone would like to donate plastic shoeboxes with the lids we would like to be able to send some of those as the children use them for storage, to haul water and bathe in.
Items for collection include:
April – T-shirts for boys or girls, sizes 2T-4T, toothbrushes in single packs and toothpaste
May – Flip flops or sandals boys and girls in various sizes
June – Socks and underwear ( all ages boys and girls)
July – Small toys like dolls, jump ropes, cars, stuffed animals, balls, slinkies, etc.
August – Crayons, coloring books, pencils, pencil sharpeners, small notebooks
September– Washcloths and bars of soap
October – Combs, hair clips and hair bands, hard candies
November – Any of tht above items we may be short of to make our goal (will notify of needs)
A box will be placed in the Vestibule for collection items.
Please note: No liquids of any kind, candy that melts or anything that is a fake weapon or represents war can be sent.
If you need someone to shop for you give your donation to Johna or one of the Mission and Ministry committee members and they will be happy to shop for you.
Join with us again this year in Christian love and faith and share our blessings in a small way with others. Thank you for supporting us in this project.
