Samaritan’s Purse

I just wanted to tell you all about a great charity for this time of year called Samaritan’s Purse. They have a project going on right now called Pack a Shoe Box. You take a shoe box and pack it full of goodies for a child. You pick boy or girl and the age group, then go shopping to fill it with the goodies. Things like toothbrushes, hard candy, underwear, socks,small toys, school supplies, soap etc. Then you can gift wrap your shoe box and take it to a local drop center (which should be listed for your area off the web site). The shoe boxes are then delivered to needy children all over the world, including Haiti. It is a wonderful idea and I just wanted to pass the word along. The web site contains all the info you need and also an instruction video on how to pack your shoe box and ideas of what to put inside. This is the collection week Nov 15-22 and I know it is a bit short notice but if you can participate it is a lot of fun. If you don’t have time to put the shoe box together yourself you can also build one online. This is the first year we have done this, in fact I just heard about it this year, and my son is having the best time building his shoe boxes. I will grab some photos of the our boxes once they are completed. Thanks for reading!!! Kim
