This year First Baptist is preparing shoeboxes for some underserved high school students in McCreary County through the Kentucky Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. Working with local schools, missionary Scarlette Jasper discovers students who will not receive a Christmas this year. First Baptist will be preparing at least 25 shoeboxes.
Each box should include soap or body wash (in a zip lock bag), shampoo (in a zip lock bag), toothbrush, toothpaste, brush/comb, washcloth, hat, gloves, and age appropriate school supplies (for a high school student). In addition, you can add a $10 gift card from either Family Dollar or Dollar General (both located in McCreary County), deodorant, wallet, jewelry, nail polish, socks, perfume or Axe Body Spray (in a zip lock bag). If you want to add another gift card, fast food restaurants in McCreary County include Arby’s, McDonalds, Subway, and KFC.
All shoe boxes need to be in the church office by Thursday, December 1. Scarlette Jasper will pick up the boxes that day.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call Norma in the church office (606-549-0280).
