Operation Christmas Child shoe box. Our dentist gives us a toothbrush, tube of toothpaste and dental floss after check ups. My daughter and mother both gave me theirs from a recent visit to the dentist to add to my shoe box stockpile. I think I will include the little plastic bag, too, as it may come in handy for the child.
Many people who fill dozens of boxes for Operation Christmas Child each year report that many dentists will give them extras. I asked our dentist one year when we were filling nearly 100 boxes for our summer VBS program and he gave us toothbrushes he ordered special for the purpose of donating. They were very inexpensive and I have chosen not to request any more as I try to include products of the quality I would give to my own children. And when it comes to toothbrushes, these children may not be able to replace theirs for a long time. You may want to check with your own dentist for donations of oral hygiene products.
