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.

See list of suggested items.

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 15th. If you need help, or have questions, contact
