The Amazing Journey of a Simple Shoebox Gift
Begins with You and Results in Evangelism, Discipleship, and Multiplication
From children to seniors, people pack shoebox gifts year to bless children in need around the world. Parents often use the project to teach their kids about giving. Cedar Hill has been collecting items (YOU CAN DONATE ITEMS!) to pack in shoeboxes. Our “Packing Party on NOVEMBER 4th @ 4 p.m. will be a fun time of fellowship and excitement as we pack empty shoeboxes - assembly-line style!
Churches and groups of all sizes collect items in their communities. Some churches also serve as drop-off locations for shoeboxes the third week of November - Cedar Hill is a Drop-off Location this year!
The boxes are transported from the Drop-off Locations, to a Central Drop-off Location and from there, the boxes are trucked to a large Processing Center where the shoeboxes are readied for shipment to various locations around the globe. The shoeboxes then make various, incredible travels by boat, on donkeys, in jeeps, on elephants . . . whatever it takes to get them into the hands of eager children!
Please consider being a part of this exciting ministry by either donating items or helping at the packing party.
