Last year, the members of Grace gifted 1,022 children with filled shoeboxes and more importantly the opportunity to know Jesus and be saved by His love.
Empty shoeboxes will be available soon for you to fill – or you can use your own. Please be sure that the box can be opened, as they are inspected at the Distribution Center and by Customs Officials in the various countries they will be shipped to.
If you don’t want to pack an individual shoebox and would like to purchase items in bulk to donate, we appreciate all donations. School supplies are on sale, so now is the best time to stock up. If you don’t like to shop, Financial Support is always welcome.
We are especially in need of the following:
- Protractors, Solar Calculators
- COLORING Books, Crayons, Colored Pencils
- TOYS: Balls, Small Cars and Trucks, Marbles, Dolls, Toys for Boys
- PERSONAL CARE ITEMS: Toothbrushes (NO tooth paste), Washcloths, and Bar Soap (NO liquids), Hair Clips/Bows, Sewing Repair Kits
- WEARABLE: T-shirts, Flip flops, Socks
- GAMES: Decks of Cards, Other small games
We have a volunteer who is sewing dresses to be included in the “girls” boxes. She is in need of donations of cotton fabric, lace, buttons, thread, zippers and embellishments. She is also sewing shorts for the boys. If you have any of these items and you are willing to donate them, please let us know.
Donations may be placed in the box on the bench in the main entry.
Thank you for supporting Operation Christmas Child
