Please send only NEW items and be sure they are NOT WAR related and NOT LIQUID. Please note, no toothpaste and no candy is allowed in shoeboxes this year (this was new last year).

Shoe boxes are individualized for each child and so they are gender and age specific (i.e. girl aged 2-4 or boy aged 5-9 or girl aged 10-14). It's OK if an item is appropriate for a boy aged 5-9 but not for a girl aged 2-4.  

The Dollar Tree, 5 Below, and clearance aisles (CVS, Target, etc.) are great places to find bargains. Happy shopping!!!

Thank you!!! Questions? Contact Dottie Chilton: [email protected] or 364-3563.
