From children to seniors, people pack shoebox gifts each year to bless children in need around the world. Parents often use the project to teach their kids about giving. Year-round volunteers support these efforts across the country.
Thousands of volunteers serve annually inspecting and preparing shoe boxes for international shipping. Every hour work stops for a few minutes to pray for the children who will receive the boxes.
Long before shoe boxes arrive in more than 100 countries, volunteer National Leadership Teams train pastors and community leaders who want to share the message of the Gospel and bless children. The leaders learn how to host child-friendly outreach events, and how to implement The Greatest Journey follow-up discipleship program.
Boxes, along with instructions on filling them, will be available in church on Sunday, October 16th and need to be returned by Sunday, November 20th.
