Our collection item for May is Hygiene Items. Did you know that many children have never owned a hairbrush, soap, or even their own washcloth? That’s why hygiene items make great additions to shoebox gifts. Here are two quotes from former shoebox recipients:
“I absolutely loved the washcloth. As an orphan I had to share a towel with about 20 kids. So when I got the washcloth I actually thought it was my own personal towel.”–Vladimir, Russia
“The toothbrush meant a lot because before I had to share my toothbrush with 25 other girls.”
While you are unable to go shopping at retail stores for shoebox items, you can shop online! Here are some ideas:
Dollar Tree - Lots of toy options, school supplies, tools, and many other items.
Oriental Trading - Crafts, toys, coloring books, you name it, they have it!
Walmart - Check the clearance items, especially for seasonal finds.
Amazon - Need we say more?
