In the wake of Hurricane Matthew, the shoebox gifts will bless children and their families more than ever. 

We will distribute as many shoeboxes as we receive. They will be given through our churches, schools, and New Missions network churches across Haiti.

 Help replenish essential items for children and their families in Haiti by sending shoebox gifts.

You can host a packing party at your church, school or office. Divide up the shopping list and assign specific items for purchase among several people. By doing this, purchases can be made in bulk. Together, you can pack shoeboxes as a group. Invite people to donate school supplies: pens, pencils, erasers, notebooks, and water bottles. Essential hygiene items such as soap, deodorant, toothpaste and toothbrushes, along with batteries and flashlights are very important, too. Don’t forget some fun items—small toys, cars, balls, playing cards, dominos, and dolls—which are certain to put a smile on a child’s face.

 Shoeboxes arrive in Orlando, and then are cased prior to being loaded on a cargo container for shipment to Haiti.

You can also pack a shoebox specifically for your sponsored child! Or, if you do not have time to pack your own shoebox, you can order one online at newmissions.org/shoeboxgiving

 Our shoebox collection runs until December 31, 2016.  Visit  shoeboxdrive.com  for packing ideas.

Thank you for sending your love to the children of Haiti. “We love because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19 ~Tim DeTellis
