July In Gathering – Christmas Shoe Boxes

Operation christmas child

It’s Christmas in July!!

Every month we have a different in-gathering.  Last month was soles for souls, and this month we’re asking people to put together shoe boxes that we will send to Samaritan’s Purse.  The SP organization then delivers the boxes all around the world to all kinds of children in need.

There are clear plastic boxes available in the parish house.  Each box has instruction inside of it to help guide you in what and what not to purchase.
You don’t have to use one of the plastic boxes, you may use any kind of shoe box.  Once you’ve made your purchases, please bring the box back to St. John’s & we will send it on.  This drive will continue throughout all of July.
