Community Missions - Monthly Shoebox Item

During the month of SEPTEMBER we will be collecting HYGIENE ITEMS for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.  Suggested items include bar soap, washcloths, toothbrushes, hair bows, combs, chapstick, nail file, dental floss, Band-Aids, Kleenex, hand wipes, etc. We will NOT be packing toothpaste anymore as this sometimes keeps countries from accepting the boxes.  Your dentist may be open to donating individually wrapped toothbrushes which would be a welcomed surprise!  Also remember to NOT pack liquids. Unused bar soap from hotels is fine but not the lotion or shampoo. Thank you in advance for your enthusiasm and support! You may also want to go ahead and get excited for October’s shoebox item…clothing/accessories.
