It will soon be time to start packing your Shoeboxes! Shoeboxes are for both sponsored and unsponsored children, so everyone can “adopt” a Box! If your Shoebox is for a child you sponsor, please write their ID# and name on the outside of the shoebox. If it is for an unsponsored child, please indicate the approx. age (2-4, 5-9, 10-14) and whether it is for a boy or a girl. Be sure to let them know who it is from – add a note or photo of yourself or your family! And most importantly, PRAY for the child who will be receiving your Christmas Shoebox!
If you wish, you can decorate your Shoebox with stickers before filling it,
then just secure your shoebox with a string or rubber band but
PLEASE DO NOT SEAL THE BOXES.
They must each be inspected before they are shipped.
Shoeboxes (size 12" x 7" x 5") are available through Body & Soul Ministries to be used for the gifts. If you live in the upper East Tennessee/Southwest Virgina area and would like to pick up one or more of these Shoeboxes for yourself, your Church or Sunday School group, or other organization, please contact:
If you are outside our area, you can still pack a Shoebox!! We will work with you to get you the shoeboxes your church or organization need or you can use a plastic box of approximate size. Or you can just mail your items and we will transfer your items to the Shoeboxes! Please mail to:
