Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Gifts – Packing Party!

Home > News & Events > Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Gifts – Packing Party!

Shoebox GiftsThank you for the many donations of gifts, candy, clothes and toys for needy children around the world. Most of them are living in war-torn countries, and the shoebox they receive will be the only gift they receive. We are meeting on Saturday, November 2, at 10 AM to pack the shoeboxes. Everyone is invited to come and join the fun at our Packing Party! We write personal notes to the children who will receive them, sharing our love for Jesus and our prayers with them.

Each shoebox costs $7.00 to deliver. We are asking members to include cash or a check for $7.00 with each shoebox they donate. Checks need to be made out to Peace Lutheran Church with “Shoebox Gift” in the memo area. Thank you! There is still time to donate items this week. Here is what we are collecting:
