the 2nd year of christmas in a shoebox

last year, missionburnaby along with our kids' school teamed up to launch christmas in a shoebox. adapted from the same idea as samaritan's purse operation christmas child campaign, our shoeboxes were being made for kids by kids, and staying local. we had the kids gather shoeboxes full of toys, goodies, hygiene and school supplies and were giving them out at several schools in south burnaby where there was great need.

last year we had just over 25 boxes to give out..what a great start!

THIS YEAR i was blown away! the community school coordinator at our school was overwhelmed at the great response from our kids at our school.

on tuesday we went thru the boxes and counted 51 boxes ready for delivering! and after we wrapped all 51 boxes, we got calls saying we had more boxes coming the next day! what a great job the kids of our school did this year! they are giving back to their own community..such a warm feeling in the heart when you see this. :)

happy holidays!

Another great idea to spread some Christmas cheer & share a bit about the true meaning of Christmas :) It's great that the kids were able to experience the GIVING and BLESSING of Christmas!
