November 8 will be Shoebox Sunday, meaning we will devote some time to filling shoeboxes for the Samaritans Purse Operation Christmas Child.
Between now and Shoebox Sunday we will be collecting items for the shoeboxes. This will give us two weeks to collect and then on Sunday, November 8 we will create our own shoebox packing machine and will be able to do this together as a church fellowship.
The shoeboxes will need to be delivered the week of November 8 and Vic and Donna have volunteered to do that for us – thank you very much!
So, what kind of stuff should we be getting for our shoeboxes? Well, here is a list of 101 ideas that you can view online or download and print: http://faithfulprovisions.com/101-operation-christmas-child-shoebox-ideas/.
