We are donating the shoeboxes to the Inter Parish Ministry (http://www.interparish.org) as a service project this holiday season.
Please bring a wrapped shoebox(es) to the December Pack Meeting – the lid and bottom must be wrapped separately so the lid can be lifted off easily and we can pack them full of needed items.
Below is a list of items needed – please choose a few to bring to the Pack Meeting (the Dollar Store is a great place to load up on all of these!) We will fill them together and will be distributed accordingly to men, women and children (young and teens) by the Inter Parish Ministry. Remember to let the scouts earn the money to buy the items for the shelters. This way they learn about giving of themselves and not just of their parents!
