If you are interested in packing a shoebox, follow these simple steps:
1. Find a Shoebox. Start with an average-size cardboard or plastic shoebox. If you want to wrap it, cover the box and lid separately.
2. Girl or Boy? Decide whether you will pack a box for a girl or a boy, and the age category: 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14.
3. Fill with Gifts. Select a quality “wow” toy such as a doll, soccer ball with pump, or stuffed animal. Then add other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies.
4. Pray. Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.
5. Follow your box labels. Donate $7 online and receive a tracking label to follow your box and discover the destination of your shoebox gift
. 6. Drop-Off. Take your shoebox gift, to a local drop-off location during National Collection Week, November 14-21. We are a local drop-off location:  7 Sunny Way, Thurmont, MD
