Shopping for OCC Shoeboxes

Remember the post about the little girls and Anna and Mary hosting a special breakfast to raise money for the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes? Well, the other day, Anna and Mary took the girls shopping.

This is the perfect time as school supplies are on sale. If you’re planning on doing shoeboxes, you should check your local Wal-Mart for good deals right now. For example, notebooks were $.17 each, slap rulers $1 each, 4-pack tumblers $1.78 (making each cup less than $.50!). Obviously prices will vary across the United States, but this is a great time! They also bought erasers, t-shirts, washcloths, normal rulers, and Crayons. They only got a small supply of Crayons, as Wal-Mart was doing inventory, and couldn’t bring out the supply in the back, so the girls will return for those later.

Operation Christmas Child is an awesome way to show love to others this Christmas! You can find out more here.

neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.”
