Christmas Shoeboxes For Soldiers

Posted: November 7, 2012

This year in the spirit of Remembrance Day, we’d like to honor our soldiers who are still serving in the Armed Forces. We will join with NBCC and prepare Christmas Shoeboxes for those soldiers who will be away from their loved ones this Christmas. If you’d like to help us out, please bring in any of the following items to place in our Christmas Shoeboxes. You may find that you have extras around the house. We will gather these items until next Thursday, November 15. Any items will help! You can send them in to your homeroom teacher each day. Most needed items: $5 (or higher) Tim Horton gift card/$5 bill and we will put ittowards Tim’s coffee.Medicated Foot Powder, Medicated Foot SprayMedicated Lip BalmSunscreen (high SPF)Disposable RazorsHand Sanitizer and/or Wet WipesBeef Jerky, Peanut Butter, Microwave popcornNICE TO HAVE ITEMSsmall pkgs of Kleenex (not the big boxes – just pkgs)Power Bars (sold at drug stores, Walmart, etc.) or granola barsM & Ms (the only chocolate that won’t melt)Werthers candy, Gumplaying cards, puzzle booksCanadian Magazines (i.e. Bread N’ Molasses : )Novels/Paperback book(s)DVDs/Series/Series/Music We could also use Christmas wrapping paper and shoeboxes.
