ANNUAL CHRISTMAS SHOEBOX PROJECT 2008
Shoebox Project 2007
Last year we handed out 600 shoeboxes filled with small
gifts and supplies for children in the San Felipe area.
We are hoping to do the same thing again this year but
we need your help in making this project a success. Just
imagine the joy your gift will bring to a needy child
in San Felipe.
Please mark on your package, the sex of the child and
age ( infant, 2 to 4, 5 to 9, 10 to 14) so we can hand
them out according to that criteria. Please wrap the top
and bottom of the box but do not tape it shut. Last year
we went through all of the packages and sorted through
the contents to ensure that nothing inappropriate had
been placed in the packages. We also added candies and
small toys to some.
We will also accept donations of canned goods and non-perishable
food items. Thank you!
