Pick up boxes at church or use your own and fill them with small gifts and hygiene items for kids affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease. Please bring filled boxes to Davisville by Nov. 17. Click here for tips on how to pack a shoebox.


come to the packing party

We will gather on Saturday, Nov. 9 from 6 - 8 pm in the main gym to pack all the awesome donations from our Zip Camp families. Join us to pack boxes, write letters and pray over the boxes. 


Volunteer at the Baltimore Processing Center

Millions of shoeboxes are collected during National Collection Week. Before these special gifts can bring hope and joy to children around the world, each one has to be carefully inspected and made ready for shipment by volunteers. You can help prepare shoeboxes for delivery by helping at the Baltimore Processing Center, one of the eight centers across the United States. We have some spots reserved on the following dates. If you are interested, contact Beth and Tom Zawisza at tommynbeth@aol.com or 215-939-7378 to reserve your spot. Transportation is not provided, but if it is an issue, please contact Beth and Tom to see if ride sharing could be arranged!
