Foster Care Shoebox Drive- In April, Love One collected shoeboxes full of age appropriate toys, toiletry items, craft materials, and school items at Savannah Christian Church and in the community for local foster care children.
There were over 200 shoeboxes collected and distributed to local and private foster care agencies in five 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! A big thank you to all of the families who made a shoebox or several for local children in foster care!
