Shoebox Packing Party: November 11

Join us on November 11 from 6:30 - 8:30PM for our Shoebox Packing Party! Each shoebox will be given as a Christmas gift to a child, so we want to communicate the love of Christ through these boxes!

Each box will be packed with various items such as: school supplies, hygiene items, toys, and more. There will also be opportunities to write a hand written note that will be put into each box. Then finally, each box will be prayed over. The packing party is a great & fun opportunity to serve together as a family!

Shoebox Packing Items

Here is a sample list of shoebox items. All items can be dropped off in any red collection bin located around the SBC campus. For more information on the Operation Christmas Child efforts at Sarasota Baptist, contact Courtney Varley (cvarley@sarasotabaptist.com).
