How to Pack a Shoebox

Find a Shoebox

Start with an average-size cardboard or plastic shoebox. If you want to wrap it, cover the box and lid separately.

 

Girl or Boy?

Decide whether you will pack a box for a girl or a boy, and the age category: 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14.

Fill with Gifts

Select a quality “wow” toy such as a doll, soccer ball with pump, or stuffed animal. Then add other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies.

 

Pray

Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.

 

Make Your Minimum $10 Donation

Please donate a minimum of $10 for each shoebox you prepare to help cover project costs--including shipping.

 

Drop-Off

Take your shoebox gifts to a local collection center during National Collection Week, November 13-19, 2017.
