Make a Big Impact with a Small Shoebox Gift

Shoeboxes will be collected November 12 – 19, and distributed in over 100 countries as part of Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child collection.

To pack a shoebox, find a standard-size shoebox, and fill it with items for a boy or girl age 2 – 4, 5 – 9, or 10 – 14 years. Items to include are school supplies, hygiene items, toys, hard candy/gum in a Ziploc bag and clothes. Add $7 or more (make checks to Samaritan’s Purse) to cover shipping costs or pay online at

Boxes can be dropped off at First Baptist Church of Sturgeon Bay, 610 N. Fifth Avenue, through Nov. 19.
