Before we share the items we will be packing this year, I wanted to share some super fun news. Remember Jordyn’s Youth Challenge from last year? Well, we have recently been in contact with many of the churches and organizations that filled shoebox gifts for this challenge; and we were so surprised to learn that many of them have DOUBLED their goals. What is funny about this, is that before we heard from any of them, Jordyn had also doubled her goal and is now working towards filling 2,000 shoebox gifts. So, as of now, there are another 8,000 shoebox gifts that are planning to be packed because of Jordyn’s Youth Challenge last year. How AMAZING is that?
I love that not only are the organizations continuing to fill shoebox gifts, but are extending their goals to reach more children!!
Here are the items we are collecting for this year’s Packing Party in November. I will do my best to update all of the totals as we receive more items.
