Please join with the Children & Families Ministry and donate a box or two. The boxes should first be filled with a quality 'WOW' toy; soccer ball & hand pump, a stuffed animal, truck, large doll, etc. Then a variety of gifts such as; hygiene items, school supplies, & simple small toys (no candy, liquids or used items please). Determine whether your gift will be for a boy or a girl, and the child's age category: 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14. Place a label on the box to show your choice. Please put a donation check of $9 made payable to Samaritan's Purse (or $9 cash) inside the box to cover the shipping costs. Boxes must be at church by November 4th. These shoeboxes will be delivered to needy children across the world in time for Christmas. The box also comes with Christ discipleship lessons. (For a complete packing list look on the display table in our church)
