Please remember to include $7 with each shoe box to help with the shipping and other expenses.

Filled shoe boxes and the $7 per shoe box need to be dropped off at the church by Wednesday, November 16th so we can get them to the drop off point on time. More information about Operation Christmas Child can be found at www.samaritanspurse.org
