Shoebox Packing Party
November 11, 2023
Bring the family and a filled shoebox or items to gift and join us on SERVING SATURDAY, November 11th – 1 PM at North Campus – as we bless children across the world with a Christmas gift and the Word. If you haven’t picked up a shoebox to fill, no worries! We ask that you select items from the approved list below to bring with you to the Packing Party.
