Rather than pulling a chocolate out of a box every day, pull something out of your cupboards and put it in a box every day. It's a great way to teach kids about giving to those in need while at the same time counting down to Christmas.
The items we hand out to those most in need are everyday items that you probably have on hand. If there is an item on the list that you don't have on hand, feel free to substitute it with something else. We can find a creative way to make use of pretty much anything that comes in. All we ask is that you keep in mind that if it's something so expired or stained and ripped that you wouldn't eat it or wear it, it's not something people in need will be able to use either.
It's gifts like these that allow us to help each other and strengthen our community. Thank you for your generosity.
