SGUMC - Missions

OCC Supplies Needed


** Volunteer request added at bottom of list ** 

We are collecting toys, personal care items, school supplies, clothing accessories, crafts and activity sets at Shady Grove UMC for Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes. Please leave your donations in the church office or drop off in the collection bins.  Collection bins will be in most of the buildings from October - November 11. Your help is GREATLY APPRECIATED! Thank You!

Shopping list - we need 10 - 12 items to fill each of the 150 shoe boxes we will be packing in November. Please consider buying in bulk!

Toys: doll, soccer ball, ball pump, finger puppets, slinky, etch-a-sketch, interactive toys, costume items, plastic toys and figures (animal, dino, action), yoyo, frisbee, kite, cars/trucks/boats, tools

Personal Care Items: tooth brushes, soap, other hygiene items, combs/brush 

School Supplies: markers / colored pencils, notebooks/paper pads, coloring books, other school supplies

Clothing Accessories: shoes / flip flops, socks, gloves, hats, scarves, outfit, dresses, backpack, other clothes / accessories (friendship bracelets, jewelr, hair bows) 

Crafts and Activity sets: puzzles, binoculars, compass, chalk/board, sewing kit, gardening kit, cards, tool set+gloves, fishing kit, rope/twine, magnets, kaleidoscope, marbles, stickers, playdough, blocks

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 shoe boxes 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.
