Operation Christmas Child

It's that time of year again to pack a shoe box full of needed and fun things for Operation Christmas Child. This is the second year that Matt and I have done this. In the past we use to fill stockings for the Red Cross.

We like to use plastic shoe boxes, that way the kids have something to keep to hold their things in or for other uses. This year ours are filled with coloring books, crayons, stuffed bears, jump ropes, bracelets (for the girls), necklaces (for the girls), puzzles, wash clothes, bars of soap, toothbrushes, and a note from us. Here is a bigger list of ideas of what to pack and what not to pack: Ideas for packing a shoe box.

I had a helper for the box packing this year too, other than Matt that is. Abby was testing out and making sure the boxes worked well.

What other service projects do you do this time of year?
