Each year at GPC we encourage our church family and surrounding communities to help support the children in the barrios of Alamar and Miramar in Tijuana, Mexico. Our Christmas Shoebox gifts for Centro Shalom and San Diego Rescue Mission bless hundreds of children. We will continue to collect more boxes through the Holiday season until January 2, 2022.
Our initial goal is to collect 400 boxes for children ages 2-18 at Centro Shalom in Mexico and another 25 to benefit teens ages 14-18 through the San Diego Rescue Mission.
Please return your shoebox to our church campus by January 2, 2022.
You can use plastic or cardboard shoeboxes. If you use a real shoebox, please wrap in festive paper in separate pieces allowing it to be opened without unwrapping.
You can either bring your shoe boxes with you on Sunday mornings or you can bring them by our church office during the day 9am to 4:00pm, M-F :).
Please mark your box with gender and age range on a slip of paper taped outside of the box.
Age Ranges: 2-4, 5-9, 10-14, 15-18
Suggested Items to Include ($10-15/box):
Toys and small games such as cards, cars, stuffed animal, doll, ball, flash light
Toiletries – toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, shampoo, deodorant, lip balm
Wash cloth, small towel
Snacks/Candy/Gum (No Chocolate please)
