Word of Life Kids – Remember your shoebox for 11/8!

shoebox and check-in binder

11/8/17 is the due date to turn in Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes as a Christian Service Project for Word of Life.

What goes into a shoebox?

  • A “Wow! gift” – something fun that will light up the child’s eyes…(soccer ball, dark skinned doll, trucks with large wheels, etc.)
  • Flashlight
  • Good quality plate, bowl or cup
  • School supplies – pencil, sharpener, colored pencils, pens for the older children (blue, black, red and green)
  • Toothbrush and plastic case
  • Nice, new t-shirts for kids (with no writing on them, please!)
  • Jump ropes
  • Basic sewing supplies and fabric
  • Marbles
  • Band-aids
  • Simple watch
  • Sunglasses
  • Harmonica
  • Hair elastics and headbands
  • …and so many other things!

For more information see the Operation Christmas Child website.
