We do not need donations of shoeboxes this year – thanks!

Shoebox Update:

We haven’t had a lot of donations turned in yet.  Our goal is to meet or exceed last year’s shoebox count of 100 boxes and we are not going to make that with what we have currently. We received some generous donations and used that money to buy t-shirts and underwear.

We are still in need of:

Toothpaste & toothbrush set (tied together)

Deodorant for both boys & girls

Soap & washcloth or scrubber

5” X 7” paper tablets

$1.00 size single serving candy boxes. No bags of candy this year!

Individual packs of gum

Gift items like flashlights, calculators, sunglasses, hats, etc.

Small scissors or glue sticks

 

We appreciate all the support from the congregation!
