To our generous parish family:

Once again, we ask for your support to bring a smile to children around the world by helping fill a shoe box with some basic necessities, learning aids and toys. The packing will take place Saturday, November 13, 9:00am - 3:00pm in the Parish Hall, including Religious Education and anyone who wants to join to help.

We will be collecting items after Mass the weekends of October 30-31 and November 6-7.

Items we are looking for include:

  • Crayons,
  • pencils (and sharpeners- never get enough of these)
  • notebooks-SMALL enough for shoe box,
  • Glue sticks (no liquid glue)
  • erasers (we never get enough of these either)
  • Stickers
  • Small coloring books
  • Solar powered calculators are awesome!
  • Scissors.
  • Large combs,
  • Tooth brushes
  • Bar soap
  • Wash clothes
  • Stick deodorant
  • Hair ties (never get enough of these)
  • Kids flip flops (for kids ages 2-14)
  • Box of band aids
  • Sunglasses (to protect their eyes and be cool!)
  • T shirts size 2T through 14 year old
  • Reusable plastic cups
  • Chapstick lipbalms (no liquid- just hard kind)
  • Small size stuffed animals (think beanie baby or smaller)
  • McDonald’s size toys
  • Cards
  • Learning toys
  • Small musical instruments- plastic recorder or harmonica would be so cool!
  • Drawstring backpack  bags or pencil case type bags
