It’s that time of year, again. Time to pack a shoebox. Do you pack shoeboxes? Many of us do. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, here’s a little video to explain it to you….compliments of Bob and Larry!
Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, has collected and delivered more than 146 million shoebox gifts to children in more than 160 countries and territories.
You and your family are invited to pack a shoebox, too. The website for Operation Christmas Child has many wonderful resources to make this easy. They have downloadable labels and much more.
You can learn how to pack the box as well as get lots of ideas for the various age/gender levels. This page also tells you of the nearest drop-off location near you. There is also now an option to build an online box.
The online Build-A-Box is fun. It allows you to virtually shop from certain groups: toys, essentials and more. You can also just click, Build A Box For Me, and then go ahead and pay. This way you don’t even have to leave your home to shop or deliver the box. The fee for online boxes is $25.
Well, if you get to pack a shoebox this year, you have until the week of November 13-20. That is the drop off week. Moms will love the wonderful activities and ideas HERE to do with their children. There are printable lessons, coloring sheets, Pack-A-Box Party ideas, and many other creative ideas and Bible lessons. Have fun, and send me a picture of your Pack-A-Box adventures!
