Operation Christmas Child
Packing Shoe boxes!
1.Find a Shoebox
Start with an average-size cardboard or plastic shoebox. If you want to wrap it, cover the box and lid separately.
2. 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.
3. Fill with Gifts
Select a medium to large “wow” item such as a soccer ball with pump or stuffed animal, then fill with other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies.
Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.
5. Follow Your Box Labels
Donate $9 online and receive a label to Follow Your Box and discover the destination of your shoebox gift.
Take your shoebox gift to a local drop-off location during National Collection Week, Nov. 18–25, 2019.
