So, I have been volunteering at my church for the past few years (as they only let people 13 and older to help). We are a collection center. So, basically, since I turn 16 a week before the drive starts, I want to do what I don’t usually do, which is make 4 shoeboxes. But, I want to make something to put in each one, and I can’t think of anything. Does anyone else have any ideas?? Thanks! 🙂

That’s awesome! I work at a Chick-Fil-A that sponsors Operation Christmas Child, and sometimes we’ll host packing parties, and we have a bin for donations open in the fall. Any small toys are great for them, but it’s also a great idea to include small clothing items like socks, hygiene items like toothbrushes, soap, and washcloths, and little bags of hard candy are great too. (No chocolate or anything that can melt, though.)

If you’re doing a box for an older girl, you might consider including some feminine hygiene products. People don’t think to do that often, but it’s really something you miss when you don’t have.

Hey! So this year I am putting together a shoe box for an older boy, because they are the least shopped for!! 🙁
I went to Mardel for most of the toys. They have some really affordable gifts. I got a slinky, a cardboard airplane, a metal cross necklace, and a really cool little squeezey thing. All for about $10 After that I will just include basic stuff like toothbrush, toothpaste, ruler, etc. I may stop by walmart and see if I can cram in any more small toys. 😀
