2008 Nampa First Project Shoebox

November 19, 2008

I am attending the Nampa First Nazarene church and every Christmas they do an event called Project Shoebox. Project Shoebox gives to school kids that would otherwise not receive anything for Christmas. We provide some basic winter clothing items, toothbrushes(I was surprised at the number of students without toothbrushes!), school supplies, and a few toys. This year we reached 2000 students! When I showed up to the wrapping tonight there were only a few people there, and after wrapping my box and 3 others, I looked up from being absorbed in my work and found the entire gym full of people! It was such an outpouring of love and grace. One that is rare to find.

I took some pics of the wrapping party, click on the image below to see them.

    That is cool. I remember when we did that one year at the Curfman’s house.
