Budget packets are coming home today.

*Free Children’s Gift Wrapping: Have your child bring his/her purchases to the wrapping lane and our volunteers will make their gifts festive.

*Charity giving: Which country will your box fly??? During our 2015 International Holiday Shop, your child will have a chance to pick up a shoebox and shop for items at the Holiday Shop to give to a child in need.  Quite often, this is the very FIRST time the recipient has ever received a gift!  Children will also have an opportunity to fill out a “Get to Know Me” coloring page and include this in their shoebox.  Once filled, the boxes can be dropped back off at our Operation Christmas Child table.  For instructions on how to pack a shoebox, visit: http://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/what-goes-in-my-shoebox-suggestions/ For instructions on how to follow your box, bring your pre-purchased $7 label to the Holiday Shop or visit here for details: http://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/follow-your-box/. Otherwise, please consider bring a check for $7 payable to Samaritan’s Purse to have your box shipped. Feel free to bring items you may have at home or items you may not be able to purchase at the Holiday Shop (ex. school supplies, hygiene items, etc.) to include in your shoebox. Thank you! Questions?  Contact Jennifer Wu at jenniferwu02@gmail.com
