Love One is collecting shoeboxes full of age appropriate toys, toiletry items, craft materials, and school items for local foster care children in our community.
Love One will be distributing shoeboxes to local and private foster care agencies in surrounding counties. The shoebox drive has been an ongoing compassion project with Love One for over three years with over 600 shoeboxes distributed to local foster care children. The purpose of this project is for children in foster care to feel the love of the community and Christ in their time of need.
These shoeboxes have provided many families an opportunity to plant a seed of hope in a child and have often led to the family taking a closer look at the idea of fostering or adopting. We have seen a growth in the number of foster care families we serve and attribute this growth to service projects just like this!
Let’s make a difference and show how much we care about the children in foster care and make a shoebox for several of our local children in foster care! Drop off your shoe box at Compassion Christian Church Effingham Campus anytime during the month of July.
