Operation Christmas Child

We did four boxes this year for Operation Christmas Child. We chose 10-14 year old boys, since that's the age that Dakota is right now. All four boxes have the same items, but colors vary. The blue baggie is a wrapped bar of Ivory soap, with a washcloth around it. Superballs are 25 cents each out of the vending machine at Old Navy. School supplies come out of the giant bins Walmart sets up in August. This is a year long project. We've already started 2104.

Notebooks Are a Necessity for OCC Shoe Boxes.  These children love to go to school and if they can't afford the supplies, they can't go.

Notebooks Are a Necessity for OCC Shoe Boxes. These children love to go to school and if they can't afford the supplies, they can't go. The notebooks can be cut in half to be "steno" size and will fit in the shoe boxes very easily.

Borax and dish detergent mixed into a paste...I rubbed this into a yr old grease stain (that had been run through the wash and dryer multiple times after trying a tide stick to remove the stain) and this concoction worked!  Just rub it in and let it sit for 30 min then put in with your laundry. POOF, stain GONE!  Can't wait to see what other clothes I can bring back from the dead with this!

Be sure to secure each box, regardless of how sturdy is seems, with two rubber bands, one across each end. Also, put a handful in a snack bag. Rubber bands are a handy school supply.
