TIPS ON PACKING YOUR CHRISTMAS SHOEBOXES 
 
Due: November 12, 2017
1. Use new items as any used clothing or toys will be discarded.
2. Each box stands alone, so don't divide items between two boxes.
3. Include some "fun" in every box, such as a doll, soccer ball, or stuffed animals as this may be the only gift some of these children receive all year. Remember, we can no longer put candy or toothpaste in boxes!
4. Last but not least, please include your check for $9 for each box you pack. You may also go online and pay by credit card. If you pay this way you will get a tracking number strip which you can print and attach to the shoebox. You can track the number until it reaches the country of its destination. If you do multiple boxes just write one check and put in one of the boxes. 
Place the boy or girl strip at either end of the top of the box. Later these boxes will be taped around the middle for shipment, so don't put the label in the middle. 
 

As schools start a new year, needs arise for uniforms, backpacks, and supplies. Your donations to the Great Commission Fund are needed. Checks can be made payable to FUMC denoted for The Great Commission Fund and given to Rosemary Knox in the church office or placed in the offering plate. Thank you!
