Build a Shoebox Online through December 25th!


Pack a Shoebox Gift

You can help a child in need and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world to many unreached people groups! Learn more in this video. Your simple gifts change lives and give children in need a tangible expression of God's Love.

  • Pick up a pre-printed shoebox and brochure at the Next Steps Table in the center lobby area. You can also use a standard shoebox or a plastic bin box.
  • Pack your shoebox gift(s) with school supplies, small toys, and non-liquid hygiene items. You can find more gift suggestions here.
  • NEW! You can also build a shoebox gift ONLINE!
    Click here.
  • Pray for the child(ren) who will receive your gift(s), their families, and communities.
  • Donate $9 for shipping. More details below.
  • Return your gift(s) to the North Atrium from November 15-23. Collection times below.
  • Due to COVID-19 concerns, we are offering a curbside option this year at our drop-off locations. A volunteer wearing a mask will greet you and direct you to an outside area where they will retrieve your shoeboxes. Collection times below.

Donate $9.00 for Shipping Costs - Why $9.00?

Every shoebox gift needs a $9.00 donation to cover shipping costs:

  • You can include the $9.00 donation by writing a check and placing it in the provided envelope from the brochure. Place this envelope inside your shoebox on top of the items in the box.
  • You can also donate $9 online to cover the shipping costs and Follow Your Box to find out the destination country.
