Each year, we use the profits from our Packing Party product sales to fill and cover the shipping cost for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes and this year we made 23!
Shoebox #3 is called Emergency! Station 51 and is for a 10-14 year old boy. Inside this firefighter-themed shoebox gift is an official Fire Department pen and stickers as well as items based on one of our favorite tv shows from the 1960s! In addition to his own toothbrush, comb, bar soap and washcloth, he will also find a notebook and a pencil case full of school supplies such as pencils, pens, crayons, colored pencils, eraser, sharpener, scissors and paper clips. A firefighting plane-print drawstring backpack keeps the theme going along with a fire extinguisher that squirts water. A dalmatian keychain, bracelet, warm gloves and a fishing kit are also inside! When it comes to toys, he will find a yo-yo, bouncy ball, mini marbles, a motorized fire engine kit, card game and two Matchbox cars – a fire engine and a paramedic squad. Last of all, a small soft stuffed Mowgli TsumTsum will surely bring a smile to his face!
Thanks to everyone who have purchased and continue to purchase our Packing Party products! Together we will change the lives of children all over the world through the amazing power of a simple gift through Operation Christmas Child.
