Operation Christmas Child Shoe Boxes: Update

After posting about Operation Christmas Child on Facebook, there has been a church friend that has joined me in filling shoeboxes. She and her co-workers have committed to filling at least 26 shoeboxes!! This is great news and I am happily donating as many pairs of flip- flops ( mark down deal at Michael's) as they need to add to the boxes.

My own church pastor has yet to answer my E- mails regarding Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes. Hmmmm..... For the last couple of weeks I have been helping my daughter find a church that she can attend that is closer to her home. So I have not been to my church or had the opportunity to speak to my Pastor in person. I am planning on attending my church this Sunday and maybe he will have an answer for me at that time.

My mom's church also fill shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child so I will be helping them out as well with flip- flops and any other items I have excess of. I love her little church! They are a small congregation, but they have a huge loving heart!
And they have been very good to my mom through out her illness.

So far I have been very fortunate to find a lot of deals. There are still some school supplies that are on clearance and summer items too.

Can't wait to see what I find this week!

You are doing a good thing with these boxes. I may do some. I see there are churches in my area where I could drop them off. However, my church does not do this particular outreach.

Our church has not done it for years... but they agreed to start it up again.
