Operation Christmas Child
Operation Shoe Box is coming! Thanks in advance to the generous community of St Edith's, in putting a smile on the face of a child somewhere in our world, and to help them see God's love in a shoe box! Operation Christmas Child will take place on November 12 (12 pm - 4 pm). We will be collecting items in late October (collection boxes will be available at this time). Please keep this in mind as you are shopping now and pick up some items on sale!
You can go to samaritanspurse.org website for details on how to print a pre-paid label, that will allow you to track your package, and to get full list of possible items to include.
Please remember that all items must fit in shoe box! For instance, full-size note books do not work very well but steno size or smaller are wonderful!
Items to Include (and what not to include):
- bar soap
- toothbrushes (but NO toothpaste please! It is considered a liquid)
- larger size combs
- hair ties for the girls
- plastic cups
- drawstring bags
- small balls
- small toys (Mcdonald's toys are great!)
- SMALL stuffed animals
- solar calculators
- pencils, pens, sharpeners, erasers, crayons, markers, rulers
- pads of paper (steno sized or smaller)
- glue sticks (NO liquid glue!)
- small puzzles and cards
- NO food of any kind
- NO liquids of any kind (includes toothpaste and liquid glue)
Keep in mind, recipients not likely to speak or read English.
Shoe Box packing will be Saturday, November 12.
Set up runs from 9 am - 12 pm and

We may need volunteers to help.
