People of all ages are invited on Friday, October 12 at 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. as we pack the gifts kids brought during VBS into pre-made Christmas shoe boxes we received from Samaritan’s Purse. We will pack these boxes for boys or girls, and then they will be sent to kids in need around the world. We will provide pizza and drinks for the evening. Please RSVP to Jenny at jennifer.austgen@hinsdaleumc.com by October 10 so she can make the needed arrangements for this evening.

You can participate in THREE WAYS!

  1. Donate items for the shoe boxes such as crayons, markers, coloring books, small note pads, pens, kids’ socks, hats, toothbrushes, wash clothes, combs, brushes, and flip flops. A collection box is in the Narthex.
  2. Donate $9.00 for postage to ship the shoe boxes. A collection box is in the Narthex.
  3. Attend the event on October 12 at 7:00 p.m. to pack the shoe boxes!
