It’s really easy to make a shoebox to donate!
First, take a shoebox, if you don’t have one, ask us, we have collected them throughout the year! Wrap the top and bottom of the shoebox separately, so the shelter can check out what is being donated. Fill the box with good stuff like:
- A warm hat
- A scarf
- Toiletry items such as hand sanitizer, deodorant
- Small first aid kit
- Granola bars
- Gift cards to local chain restaurants/stores that are easy to access in all neighborhoods (Dunkin’ Donuts, McDonald’s, 7-Eleven, etc.)
You will quickly find you have plenty to fill your box!
Sit down with a blank holiday card and take a moment to write a nice note to the person receiving the box. For some people, this will be the only gift they receive this year. Feel free to share an inspirational message, but please do not include any identifying information, like your full name or address. Feel free to secure it with a ribbon around the box that can be slipped off to check the contents.
When you are done, you will have transformed an empty shoebox into a gift of hope for someone in need.
Drop off your shoebox no later than December 20, 2019!
