Cedar Springs High School students are putting together “Shoebox Gifts” as part of a community service project with Samaritans Purse International Relief. Operation Christmas Child brings joy and hope to children in desperate areas throughout the world.
Students are also giving shoebox gifts to “Senior Neighbors” in the local community as well. Gifts will be delivered with senior meals via the North Kent Service Center.
To donate a box:
Wrap an empty shoe box—wrap the lid separately.
Fill the box with new toys, candy, personal items and a note for a boy, girl or Senior Neighbor. Label the box by age & gender.
Drop the Shoebox Gift off at the CSHS Community Service Office before November 13.
Donations of new “items” to be included in the boxes are welcome as well.
The students will use the items to create additional shoe box gifts.
It is a great way to volunteer and brighten the day of a child or senior in need. For many of these folks, this will be the only gift they receive the entire year!
