Believe it or not it is time to start collecting for the “Shoe Box Christmas”. The gaily wrapped shoe boxes are for the Dakotas Children of the Harvest. Each shoe box should have the lid and box gift wrapped separately (rubber band lid to box). There will be wrapped boxes in the Narthex for your convenience. The gifts should be marked with the gender and appropriate age category. No clothing in the shoeboxes except for hats, mittens, scarves, and gloves. They have had shortages in shoeboxes in the age group of boys age 8 and up (through youth).
Infants: baby powder, bibs, bottles, quilts, blankets, infant toys.
Girls ages 2-7: Age appropriate educational items, reading books, dolls, stuffed animals, coloring books, paints.
Several wrapped shoe-boxes are on the table along with the labels & rubber bands.
AND – we found out that there is no size limit to the boxes!!! So all those larger boot boxes are in!! So please take one that is already wrapped, or wrap your own, & place a label with the gender & age range circled, then place the larger rubber bands around the box & label!!
Thanks so much for all that you all do for so many needy children!
