Shoebox Christmas

 And now it’s time for Shoebox Christmas! We are changing our format
 somewhat this year due to personnel changes on the Committee. We will need
  to review each gift carefully and make them similar for each grade. We go
  directly into each classroom at Enemy Swim School, so we want them as equal
 as possible, but will not be emptying and refilling as we have done previously.
 
This means that it may be more helpful to ask the congregation to actually fill a Shoebox for a specific age child, or if you prefer to give a monetary donation, we will enlist the assistance of the youth groups and fill Shoeboxes for you! Each box is recommended to be approximately a $20 value, so money given in that increment is most helpful. We will have idea lists out to help you fill a Shoebox. Why not make it a family event—and experience the joy of together giving to a child who may otherwise have little Christmas excitement in their life.
 
We will be gearing up on this project over the next few weeks. If you would like more information or would like to assist us, please seek out Kristie Scherbenske, Brenda Weishaar, or Pastor Lou. Gifts will be delivered to Enemy Swim in mid December, (if weather cooperates).
