Shoeboxes for Soldiers
WHAT: This year Living Hope is sending Christmas Shoeboxes (care packages) to Nikolay Krug’s army unit in Germany. The purpose of this project is to provide encouragement and to share the good news of the Gospel with these soldiers who are away from their families at Christmas. We will be packing 40 boxes. Living Hope will supply the boxes, Bibles, and a tract/booklet. We are asking our church family to sign-up to purchase items, which include gift cards, socks, and snack items, as well as to write notes of encouragement to bless these soldiers.
LETTERS/CARDS: We would like our LHC church family to write notes/cards to our soldiers that we can put in the boxes; the more notes the better. You may address your note, “Dear Soldier…” Letters can be dropped off at church or mailed to Julie Coggins, One Longview Court, Stewartstown, PA 17363.
DONATION DUE DATE: Sunday, November 22nd. All gift items and cards/letters can be brought to church on 11/8, 11/15, or 11/22. If you are not attending church in person, you may mail your gifts and cards/letters to Julie Coggins, One Longview Court, Stewartstown, PA 17363.
*The sign-up genius above has 40 sign-up spots under each type of gift—$10 gift cards for Burger King , Tactical Boot Socks, and Snack Bag items (candy bars, small bags of chips, gum, nuts, cookies, and Pedialight packets). We are hoping that this will mean each soldier will receive the same big items, a variety of snacks, and cards of encouragement to brighten their Christmas.
