How to Pack a Shoebox
Step 1. Find a box
Start with an average-size cardboard or plastic shoebox. If you want to wrap it, cover the box and lid separately.
Step 2. Boy or Girl?
Decide whether you will pack a box for a girl or a boy, and the age category: 2–4, 5–9, or 10–14.
Step 3. Fill with Gifts
Select a medium to large “wow” item such as a soccer ball with pump or stuffed animal, then fill with other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies.
Step 4. Pray
Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.
Step 5. Follow Your Box (Optional)
Donate $10 online and receive a label to Follow Your Box and discover the destination of your shoebox gift. If you don’t want to follow your box, please print a label and attach it to the box.
Step 6. Drop Your Box(es) at Church
Take your shoebox gift to church on or before October 16th. If you need help, or have questions, contact email@example.com
