Year Round Collection - we collect items year round to support this ministry. If you are unable to purchase items, we will do it for you! You may donate HERE!
Our collection item for July is clothing items. Clothing can be quite useful. Often these children don't have shoes or only torn clothes. While this may be one of the more useful/practical items sent, it can also be quite fun! Cute patterned socks, crocheting around the straps of flip-flops, etc. can make them "Wow" items. Here's an impact story of one girl and her shoes:
“One of my favorites in my shoebox was white socks because in the orphanage you get bad quality socks that always stink and have holes in them.”–Timur, Central Asia
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?
