Fill your shoe box with school supplies, hygiene items, and toys. Other ideas found at Samaritan'spurse.org. Please include a $9.00 donation for each box to cover shipping costs.
Please do not include candy, toothpaste, used or damaged items, war related toys, food or liquids.

Your help is appreciated to greet donors, receive their shoe box gifts, pack the shoe box gifts into cartons, and load the heavy cartons onto trucks. Thank you for volunteering!
Calvary Youth and their Families Volunteer Day, Friday, Nov 17th.
Help us pack and load the trucks for Operation Christmas Child in the Calvary Gym on Friday, Nov. 17 from 3:30-7:00. If you can't get there right at 3:30 please sign up and indicate in the notes when we can expect your arrival.
The whole family can help pack as there is a job for every age. We need helpers to pack shoe boxes in cartons and label them correctly, to strong helpers lifting and stacking these cartons onto the trucks themselves.
Dinner is included as our way of saying thank you for volunteering!
