July's collection items are Clothing! We have a number of t-shirts left over from last year but we'll need a lot more. Three cases of water bottles were also donated last year, and we'll roll shirts up into the bottles to save some room. There are shirts listed on our Amazon Wishlist but they are also reasonably priced at Hobby Lobby, Michael's and Wal-Mart. Sales happen all the time at Wal-Mart, so please think about our shoeboxes if you happen to see any discounts. Remember that we're packing for the 10-14 children, so Youth L or XL, or Adult S or M sizes are best. Socks fall into this category too 🙂
We now have over 300 crocheted hearts! Many, MANY thanks to Karen Nick for all her hard work on these blessings for our shoeboxes. I also heard from Linda Smith that some of the ladies at Keystone are making them as well, so we'll have even more hearts! The pattern is still on our table in the hallway if you'd like to give one a try.
Here's the link for our Amazon Wish List:
Keep working on those Spare Change bottles! We've collected nearly $500 so far but we'll need a lot more to meet our goal of sending 300 boxes in 2023. We appreciate every penny 🙂
Thanks again for your ongoing support!
