Christmas Shoeboxes – Making it Local This Year

Christmas Shoeboxes – Making it Local This Year

Fauquier County Food Distribution Coalition is again filling Christmas shoeboxes for children of families who come to the December 18, 2021 food distribution.

Here’s how YOU can help:

  1. Get an empty shoebox (or purchase a plastic shoebox)
  2. Decide if your gift will be for a boy or girl and which age category: 2-3 yrs., 4-5 yrs., 6-10 yrs., or 11-14 yrs.
  3. Fill your shoebox with a variety of gifts* and then wrap the shoebox in Christmas paper.
  4. Attach a label or tag to the top of your box identifying boy or girl and age category.
  5. Bring your wrapped boxes to the narthex of Our Saviour Lutheran Church by Sunday, December 12.

♦ Gift Suggestions (What would the age of boy or girl enjoy having in their box?): small cars, balls, dolls, stuffed animals, yo-yos, small etch-a-sketch, slinky, pens, pencils, sharpeners, crayons, markers, stamps, ink pad sets, coloring books, pads or loose paper, toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, mittens, hats, gift card (ex: Walmart, Chick-fil-A, McDonalds, etc.); for 11-14 yrs., deodorant and deodorant shoe balls or sachets.

Contact Judy & Dave Raecke through your church directory (or by getting their contact info through the church office) with any questions or to find out how else you can help.
