DONATE T-SHIRTS by Sunday, Aug. 4

Drop off your old, colored t-shirts (of all sizes) at the GO Center (across from Room 230) or at Camp Kids Place, the summer day camp at Cherrydale Baptist Church. Campers will prepare items for our Operation Christmas Child box-packing party, including braided jump ropes made from t-shirts. We’ll accept your t-shirts through Sunday, August 4.

Help us meet our goal of 500 shoeboxes! Donate now.

500 Shoeboxes

When you make an online donation of $23 to SPONSOR A SHOEBOX, 100% of your tax-deductible gift goes toward the cost of a complete shoebox gift to be packed at our Nov. 9th Packing Party, including:

  • Age-appropriate contents, curated to be an ideal mix of practical and fun items;
  • The Greatest Journey, Samaritan Purse’s discipleship program; and
  • All shipping and packaging fees, ensuring that your shoebox arrives securely to an awaiting boy or girl overseas.
