Items of the Month: July

Summer is already halfway over!!! I can't believe it, but it's almost time to start shopping for school supplies (*hint hint* --Always grab some extra notebooks, pencils, glue sticks, index cards, and other school supplies for the boxes when you're back-to-school shopping!!!--)....

So, July's items of the month are...

  • flip flops. Right now is a great time to get flip flops - summer time sales are the perfect opportunity to shop for not only flip flops, but also for other box fillers!!!

  • sunglasses. Need I say more?

  • tank tops/shirts. These are especially perfect for boys' boxes and they are super useful!!! (But we also take girls' tops!!!) Just remember, though, no long sleeves or patriotic/camouflage tops! Breezy, cool, light colored shirts are the best!!! :)

Items of the Month: April

**NOTE: I thought I had scheduled this to be posted during the first week of April, but apparently I forgot to click the "schedule" button. *duh* Oh well, here are the items of the month for the last half of April. :) Enjoy!**

It's April...already?!?!?! How is that even possible? Easter is over already and spring is here (along with all the allergies)...

Anyway, the items of the month for April are...

These little things can  make such a big difference in the lives of kids all around the world. Last winter, Samaritan's Purse did a 12-week special called #shoeboxstories, which feature shoebox recipients and their stories. To check those out, click here.
