Our church has been participating in Operation Christmas Child the past few years but this is the first year I had the energy to participate. We decided to do two boxes. The boys decided to do both boxes for a boy. I decided we would do the oldest age group since I read somewhere that they get the least boxes donated.
All 3 of us enjoyed shopping for the boxes. I tried really hard to make it all fit and the boys did an awesome job filling out their little bio sheets!
We included in our boxes: socks, work gloves, t-shirt, soap, toothbrush & paste, comb, suckers, mini finger golf game, pencils, notebook, calculator, flashlight & batteries, 2 different screwdriver sets, car, bouncy ball, stickers, modeling clay.
It was so fun to jam that little box with stuff and think about the young man who will receive it! I hope he loves it and doesn't wish it has something else in it!!
We paid for the shipping of the box on-line so we should be able to find out what country our boxes end up in! We'll keep you posted!
