November 14-21 is Collection Week.
Samaritan's Purse website will help you find a place locally to drop them off.
we switched to plastic containers after one of my readers commented that plastic containers can be reused by the recipient of the gift. these are sterilite containers from target and were $1.49 each.
the kids absolutely loved this project!
hank is showing you how to double bag all candy. i'm pretty sure picking out the candy was his favorite part.
5 boxes ready to go!
Each box needs a $7.00 donation (which is so minimal when you think about the impact). we chose to donate our $35.00 online and Samaritan's Purse emailed me a confirmation with barcoded labels attached.
I tape the appropriate label to each box and the barcode will be scanned and tracked so we know where our boxes go!
