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 http://www.samaritanspurse.org.
Boxes can be dropped off at First Baptist Church of Sturgeon Bay, 610 N. Fifth Avenue, through Nov. 19.
