Easter Sunrise Shoeboxes

Shoeboxes collected will be donated to the Franciscan Outreach Organization and Housing Forward – Collection will start on Ash Wednesday, February 14, and end on Palm Sunday, March 24

Fill a shoebox or a comparable-size container (you provide the container) with a variety of personal size items. These are just a few suggestions: Tube Socks, Hotel Size – Soap and Shampoo, Kleenex (small packages), Brush and/or Comb, Plastic Rain Poncho, Deodorant, Wash / Face Cloth, Small Towel, Toothbrush / Toothpaste, Razor, Baby Powder, Hand Lotion, Hand Sanitizer, Other Small Items, and Gift Card from McDonald’s, Burger King, etc. (not to exceed $10.00)

Please be sure to include these items: Word Search or Crossword Puzzle Book with Pen or Pencil, and some wrapped Easter candy.

When your shoebox is filled (you can decorate it if you choose to do so) put a rubber band around it. Mark the box either “Man” or “Woman.” Place your shoebox in the designed box at the back of your church or on the back pews in the Gathering Space at St. Giles Church or drop it off at the St. Giles Parish Center. During Holy Week the boxes will be delivered to the two organizations so that they may be distributed during Easter time.

Thank you for caring and participating! – Know that your work of mercy will make a difference in someone’s life!
