Good evening everyone. We are planning for our 19th annual Operation Christmas Child Packing Party on Sunday, November 11th at 3pm. Our goal is to wrap approximately 100 shoe boxes. Each box costs $9 to ship. Therefore, we will accept monetary donations to help cover shipping costs.
We are looking for donations of several supplies to help in wrapping the boxes, including the following:
EXTRA LARGE Rubber Bands - Two are used on each shoe boxes.
Christmas Wrapping Paper (new/in good shape)
We are in need of the following items to go into our shoe boxes. Below is our current inventory count:
Bath size soap bars already in Ziplock bags - 68
Toothbrushes - 58. I would say we could definitely use at least 50 more of each. Those go in EVERY box, so we will need to double the amounts roughly if we are setting a goal of 100
Small tissue packets - 9
Combs - 13
Hair barrettes - 7
Large elastic headbands- 24
Medium sized plastic construction trucks - 3
Matchbox/Hotwheels cars - 51
Toddler appropriate cars - 20
Toy hockey sticks and balls - 12
Mini nerf football - 1
Small baby dolls - 4
Plush toys - 2 - We are in great need of plush toys!!! We need one for every shoe box!
Post It pads - 3
Pencil sharpeners - 17
Erasers - 2
Pencil top erasers - 30
Rulers - 4,
Colored pencil sets - 3
We are in great need of pencils, pens and crayons. Also, we need puzzles, games, books, coloring books, diaries/journals, solar calculators, notebooks, drawing paper, and markers.
We hope you will support Operation Christmas Child and donate items for our shoe boxes. Monetary donations to cover the cost of shipping ($9/box) are also welcome!
