Shoebox 1k

The long anticipated day came and left and oh how we were blessed! Over 300 volunteers converged upon the Christian Youth Center of Morris, IL to help us pack over 2000 shoebox gifts. (Our final total ended up being 2129!) In addition to the 300 volunteers we had Shine FM radio join us for the day as well. They took photos that people could put in their packed shoeboxes along with a letter to the child receiving the boxes.

I wish to thank the hundreds of people that have volunteered not just during the packing party, but throughout the year as well. Thanks to our generous sponsors that donated supplies and money and items to raffle off.My regular crew; David, Winter, Emily, Sharon, Sherri, Tricia (and kids,) Mike, Ed, Jules, Judy, Heidi, Erica, Laurie (and company) Lana, Rita, Sylvia, Clare, and Emma, and I'm sure there are more people that I am forgetting...(please forgive me) You all are amazing and it's our efforts put all together and mixed in with God that turn this project into a "whole lot of AWESOME"

Please enjoy a few snapshots from the day, to view the full photo albums, visit the "Shoebox 1k" photo albums on Facebook:
