Inside A Shoebox
// Tim DeTellis
What will you pack inside your shoebox? There are many great ideas: school supplies and hygiene items including soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes.
Some of the feedback we receive from parents and kids is that they love items for their family, too. Games such as Dominoes are great, as they can play together. Flashlights and home utensils (spoons and forks) are very useful. Water bottles are a big help as our students walk to school.
You and a group from your church, school, office or neighborhood can host a “packing party” and fill more shoeboxes. Divide up the list of items needed and have fun hosting your “packing party!” Our collection runs through December 31, so there is still plenty of time to participate.
You can even pack a shoebox gift for pastors, nurses, and teachers. To view suggested packing lists visit www.shoeboxdrive.com. Our goal is to deliver shoebox gifts to each of our schools, and also through our churches—to provide additional gifts for use during their mission trips across Haiti. ~Tim DeTellis
