Last year, the members of Grace gifted 559 children with boxes and the message “Jesus Saves”. We’ve never set a specific goal before, but this year the number 1,000 has been placed in our hearts. We are getting the word out early this year, so that 1,000 children will receive boxes from our congregation with the message of the Saving Love of Jesus.
There are many ways to participate: School supplies are on sale, so now is the best time to stock up. If you don’t want to pack an individual shoebox and would like to purchase items in bulk to donate, we are in need of the following items: School supplies, Coloring books, Balls, Small cars, Tooth brushes (NO tooth paste), Washcloths and bar soap (NO liquids), T-shirts, Flip flops, Small toys
Please note: edible items and liquids are not permitted in the boxes.
We have a volunteer who is sewing dresses to be included in the “girls” boxes. She is looking for donations of cotton fabric, lace, buttons, thread, and embellishments. If you have any of these items and you are willing to donate them, please let us know.
If you have any questions, contact: Angie and Dick Beecher 752-3081
