SHOEBOX PROJECT - OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Kindly help support this Samaritan's Purse Christmas mission outreach by filling shoeboxes with useful and fun items for the world's neediest children. There will be a brief introductory meeting to kick off this project following the service this Sunday, October 2nd in the Fellowship Hall.
Here are 2 ways to be involved: (1) You and your family can prepare shoebox gifts at home – either in plastic shoeboxes provided by us (no wrapping necessary, and we'll decorate them with Christmas stickers for you) or in your own wrapped standard-sized shoeboxes (please wrap the box and lid separately). There is a shipping charge of $7 per box. No time to shop? We'd be pleased to fill a box for you - a $20-$25 donation will pack a nice box, including shipping. The St. Mark’s collection date for boxes you’ve packed will be Sunday, November 13th. Brochures and materials will be available in the Fellowship Hall after services.
(2) Join us on Sunday, October 30th after the service for a Parish Shoebox Packing Party in the Fellowship Hall. We have lots of pre-puchased items waiting to be packed. All are welcome – please feel free to bring a friend. We will need box wrappers, packers, and labelers. Pizza, salad and drinks will be provided.
Please see Diane McTigue with any questions or donations (215-942-9173). Thank you! Read more online.
