Christmas Shoebox Project

Are you looking for ways to get your family, co-workers or even church involved in serving at Christmas? Our Christmas Shoebox Project is a great way to get give back.

This is an ongoing community project where anybody can serve those at the Mission. There are many people in our community seeking basic necessities. By becoming involved with the Christmas Shoebox Project, you are able to provide things needed daily and also give back locally!

Below is a list of basic needs of men and women who come seeking help at the Mission. Please pack the items in a shoe box and wrap it as if presenting it as a gift for an individual who is staying at our Mission. You can pick the size of the gift box you want to wrap. Please wrap the lid of the box separate from the box itself.
