We would like to start collecting items for Operation Christmas Child (Shoeboxes) early this year.
Alot of items are on sale right now because of "Back To School" sales. The following is list of items that we have put in the boxes the last couple of years. We will be collecting items for Boys and Girls ages: 2 - 4, 5 -9 and 10-14. Please keep in mind when purchasing items that they will need to fit in a box the size of a shoe box. If you have any questions or just want to give money you can see Susan Petty or Pebble Kidd.

And any other item you can think of. We will also need boxes to ship items in: Plastic shoe box size with lids. Our goal this year is 60 boxes.
They do not want any war-related items such as toy guns, knives or military figures, chocolate, lotions or breakable items such as snowglobes or class containers.
You can find all of these items at the Dollar Store or Dollar General. Please help if you can.
