this is a project our family loves to take part in.
i used to bring my kids with me to shop for the gifts that go in the boxes
but i don't do that anymore....it was too crazy.
and they want to buy EVERY thing.
now i buy things throughout the year when they go on sale.....school supplies especially.
but i also buy a bunch the last month alongside my groceries.
and store it until i am ready to fill our boxes.
we watch the video on samaritanspurse.org. (the same one that is posted above)
and i cry. every. single. time.
my kids say "are you crying?!!!"
of course i am.
then my kids fill the boxes.
each of them made a card for their box.
we add a family photo and our address if they would like to or are able to write back.
this year we will donate online so we can see exactly where our boxes go.
our church collects them and then drives them to a collection center.
you can look HERE to see where the nearest collection center is to you.
i wish i had posted this earlier to give you more time to get supplies.
this week is the collection week.
it's not too late!
you could do it all in one shopping trip...today!
or any time this week.
you can do it.
go to samaritanspurse.org for any information.
it's ALL there.
