Each year Buck Run collects shoeboxes that will be given to children around the globe. You can be a part of this incredible ministry by filling a shoebox and returning it to Buck Run on November 5. Each shoebox will be given to a child following a Gospel presentation. Below are instructions on how to fill your box.

How to Pack a Shoebox

1. Find a Shoebox

Start with an average-size cardboard or plastic shoebox. If you want to wrap it, cover the box and lid separately. You can pick up a shoebox from the church if you need one.

2. Girl or Boy?

Decide whether you will pack a box for a girl or a boy, and the age category: 2–4, 5–9, or 10–14.

3. Fill with Gifts

Select a medium to large “wow” item such as a soccer ball with pump or stuffed animal, then fill with other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies. You can find gift suggestions here. 

4. Pray

Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.

5. Follow Your Box
