Each year, we use the profits from our Packing Party product sales to fill and cover the shipping cost for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes and this year we made 23!
Shoebox #16 is for a 10-14 year old girl and is themed, Bird Puppet. Inside is an adorable bird marionette which we made from pom poms, popsicle sticks, fishing line and a few other items. There are also school supplies, including crayons, paper and a school pouch filled with pencils, pens, paper clips, an eraser and pencil sharpener. She will love her new sneakers, zig-zag socks, Easter egg with hair bands, candy cane and bag of yummy candies. We can’t forget to mention the bar soap, washcloth, toothpaste, toothbrush and comb of her very own. Last of all, there is a train whistle (yes, it really does sound like a train), “Clap For The Lord” hand clapper, mini UNO card game, bead necklace and several Bible stencils. Best of all, we made a large yarn pom pom out of red, orange and pink yarn for her to enjoy along with her new infinity scarf.
Before bringing this shoebox with us to the Collection Center during National Collection Week, we’ll slip in a personal note to the child and a photo!
Thanks to everyone who have purchased and continue to purchase our Packing Party products! Together we will change the lives of children all over the world through the amazing power of a simple gift through Operation Christmas Child.
