Guess what guys and gals! It is officially the time of year to create a shoe box and fill it full of goodies for a little girl or boy for the Samaritan’s Purse project. I hope to get this done today or tomorrow, so I can turn it in on time. Your shoe box must be turned in by Friday, November 16th. It’s a project that I take part in every year simply because I know that my contribution is going straight to a child that would likely be receiving nothing for Christmas. I know how much receiving random gifts makes me feel, and I’m much more fortunate than those little children. What makes it even more wonderful is that you can contribute your $7 online and track your box!
I’ve compiled a list of good ideas to include in a box:

Remember….boxes must be in by Friday!
Update! I made my box, and it’s ready to go. I got all of my items from the Dollar Tree and packed it full. Here’s what I bought. Maybe it will give you some ideas!
Here’s a tip! Buy a $1 plastic tote with lid from the Dollar General. Then, it is something that they can use again instead of just a shoe box that will fall apart.
Now, it’s all packed up and ready to go for a 5-9 year old little girl.
