A Surprise Source for Empty Shoe Boxes!

empty shoe boxes from youth soccer team for Operation Christmas Child

Last year when we were putting on a spur of the moment packing party for the kids at church we found we were short on boxes.  We asked a friend with a small business to put out a plea on her Facebook page for empty shoe boxes.  We received several dozen.  One of her customers remembered this and when they had empty shoe boxes from their youth soccer team they sponsor they called her to ask if we wanted them.

Of course we did!  Twenty-two youth sized, sturdy boxes -- just perfect for 2 to 4 year old boy boxes, I don't even plan to wrap them as they are a nice bright blue.

So if you need more empty shoe boxes, check out your local youth sports teams and ask them to save them for you.

Happy Packing!
