Shoebox List

People are beginning to join in on the shoeboxes. Below I have included a picture of a nice looking box (kinda unpacked, but you get the idea)


Also here is a list that I am mailing out.



·         Toiletries – toothbrush, toothpaste, wrapped bar of soap

·         Hair care – comb, brush, hair accessories

·         Writing materials – notebook, pens, pencils (please include sharpener and eraser), math set, ruler, crayons, paints and brushes, drawing and painting book

·         Clothing – ball cap, scarf, gloves, socks, pants/knickers

·         Small toys – doll, car, skipping rope, ball, musical instrument, soft cuddly toy, puzzle, games.

·         Sweets – small bag of wrapped sweets – please ensure they are at least 12 months in date.



·         Chocolate or food items other than wrapped sweets

·         Second-hand or used items

·         English reading books

·         Makeup

·         Glass, mirrors, ceramic or other breakables

·         Guns, knives, military or monster/scary toys

·         Battery-operated items

·         Medicines or drugs of any kind




Indicate whether the box is a boy or girl box.

Make all boxes for a child of either 5-9, or 10-14 years of age.

 You can wrap your box with either contact paper, or wrapping paper and glue. PLEASE wrap the lid separately, then tie on with a ribbon.

PRAY for the child who will receive your shoebox

Much Love

Mike & Vicki!!!!
