JAM City's Shoebox Packing Party

DETAILS: Each child will be packing a shoebox with the items they bring in for Operation Christmas Child. Additional items will be available to supplement boxes. If this will be a financial burden to your family, no worries, your child will be taken care of. But please contact edem@whbc.org so we can make sure a bag of goodies is available for your child to pack.

KIDS: Between now and November 17, go shopping with a parent, grandparent, or other adult for items to fill your shoebox. Shoeboxes are not super large (11.5l x 4.375h x 7w), so choose the size of your items wisely. 

  • A sample box will be available at the Checkpoint Desk if you want to see if your items will fit.
  • We are asking each child to bring a 4x6 photo (or smaller) of themselves, that we can include in a card they will be making that morning.
  • We’ll provide the shoebox, you provide the items!
  • It’s easy peasy. Just follow the checklist that was mailed, and you’ll be ready to go!


For specific item suggestions check out the Samaritans Purse website
Contact Alia Edem with any questions. 

Join us this Sunday for worship – 9:00am and 10:30am
