Update: Thank you to all who donated and participated in the packing. We had a goal of packing 30 shoe boxes for this year. On Sunday November 13th we packed 40 shoe boxes. When we started doing this project a few years ago it was mainly youth doing the packing. It is exciting to see more adults involved each year.
We will have a box for collecting gift items as well as an offering on October 30th.
