The Shoe Box Project began with the need of so many women at Christmastime. It takes place all over the world.  As you know, our community is no different.

Freedom Kitchen has graciously offered to hand out the shoe boxes to those in need during the last two weeks of November. That way families will have special gifts for Christmas day. If you would like to participate in putting together the shoeboxes, please call the office and your name will be added to our list.

If you are able to bring empty shoe boxes, decorated or not, along with any of the following contents, there will be a box in the Narthex. We hope to be putting the boxes together the week of November 13th

Suggested Items to include:

  • Cozy accessories: socks, mitts, scarf, hat, hand warmers
  • Helpful items for the warmer months: sunscreen, reusable water bottle                       
  • Something sweet: nut- free chocolate and candy (non-alcoholic filled)
