Throughout the year we fill and collect items for the Samaritan's Purse. The children that receive boxes would love to have you take part in creating a shoebox filled with fun and necessity items. Below is a list of items that we collect and that can be placed in a shoebox. We have boxes at the church that you can fill or bring in your items and we will pack them into a shoebox on November 13th at 3-5pm during our packing party.

What a joy to spreading the love of Jesus to the children all around the world. Join us in collecting items, filling boxes and helping us meet our
Goal of 200 boxes.
So far this year we have 34 boxes completed and have received $200 for postage and $150 for supplies.
Here is the current list of supplies we have to put into boxes (remember our goal is 200 for each item below)
20 dolls 53 bracelets
21 necklaces 56 coloring books/activity books
132 boxes of crayons 200 erasers
100 soccer balls and pumps 100 mics toys and instruments
18 stuffed animals
500 + pencils 10 pens 1 box of colored pencils
29 prs of socks 88 dresses
50 Combs 12 headbands
12 soap & washcloth packets 16 washcloths
16 mini notepads
We desperately need notebooks, soap, washcloths, and fun filler items.
If you would please remove as much packaging as possible. Soaps can remain in their plastic wrap and toy/game instructions need to stay attached, but I would appreciate tags and packaging on other items to be removed.
