Packing Party Update: One Week Left

Posted on

Just wanted to show you pics of some of the awesomeness that is our community, family, friends, and church!!

Our local SweetBay Supermarket donated some toothpaste, and had an awesome clearance sale going on at the same time. We got hooked up!!!

Books a Million donated 40 toys ranging from books, puzzles, plush toys, and jump ropes. Thank you so much BAM!!!

Between the donations from Disney, medical facilities, Samaritan’s Purse, and Clearance on Oriental Trading Company, these 3200 stickers cost us $6.23!

Our local Operation Christmas Child volunteer chapter gave us 400 shoeboxes, packing tape, 133 bandaid packages, and this huge box of toys (377 toys)!! WOW!

So, this is our OCC Closet as of this morning…

And, here is our garage, which has never looked more awesome…

Friends, thank you so much for all of your support with this project. We have been blown away by the outpouring of love from all over the place to help our 7 year old with her goal of putting together 1000 shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. We have one week until our Packing Party and only a few hundred items still needed.

Our still needed item list is shrinking super fast, but here’s what you can pray for:

330 Bars of Soap – 670 received

908 Boxes of Pencils – 92 received, thank you Staples, Walgreens, and donors

851 Boxes of Bandaids – 149 received

249 Girl Toys – dolls, puzzles, Princess-stuff, cards, coloring books – 751 Received

192 Boy Toys – cars, jacks, cards, legos, footballs, coloring books – 808 Received

4750 Balloons – 250 Received

213 Empty Shoeboxes – 787 Received

1750 Plastic Ziploc Sandwich Bags – 150 Bags received

Hard Candy

On Monday, we will be picking up soap, pencils, toys, toothpaste, and bandaids from a local school Jordyn inspired to collect items for this project, so we will post updated information at that time!!

Please pray with us that God will continue to provide the rest of the needs for the boxes and the donations to ship these out!! We are so excited to see what God is doing and are in awe of how HE uses willing hearts!!
