New Hope is a drop off location for shoe boxes

Since 1993 more than 135 million boys and girls in over 150 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoe box gifts. Your family is encouraged to join in as we partner with Samaritan’s Purse in sharing the life-changing Good News of Jesus. There are several ways you can participate:

(1) Fill a shoe box with small toys, hygiene items and school supplies for a child age 2-4, 5-9 or 10-14. Guides for how to pack a shoe box and Boy/Girl labels are available at the church.

(2) Make a donation for shipping costs ($7 per box). Make checks payable to New Hope, or make your donation on-line at samaritanspurse.org.

(3) Volunteer during National Collection Week. New Hope serves as a regional collection center and we will need volunteers to help unload boxes, check them in, and pack them in shipping cartons. Contact David Derden 660-221-9547 about this.
