Samaritan's Purse sponsors one of my favorite charity projects – Operation Christmas Child (shoeboxes full of gifts). My children’s group at church is hosting a packing party this year with a goal of 150 shoeboxes. I have been shopping all year for items to go into the boxes. One of my projects for the 10-14 girl boxes is sewing kits.
I have included a piece of fabric (donated), buttons, sewing needles, safety pins, measuring tape, and thread in two colors. I purchased cones of thread last year and had plenty left for this year. I wound it onto floss bobbins. I had purchased the measuring tapes in bulk last year and still have enough for one more year. I am still searching for a deal on scissors. Right now I have less than $1 in each kit. These will make nice additions to the older girl shoeboxes!
