Thank you to all who made our Shoebox Ministry such a success this year. Your contributed boxes and online contributions enabled us to distribute 279 gift-filled shoeboxes to individuals in need in the local area. Through Ridgefield Social Services, we give shoeboxes not just to children but also to seniors as well. In fact, Jesse Lee's team of Shoebox Angels again teamed up with RSS and Kohl's to bring holiday cheer to 100+ seniors, helping them to select warm clothing (all paid for by a very generous donor to RSS) and providing them with shoeboxes full of stocking stuffers. Several seniors were brought to tears, commenting that they weren’t expecting any Christmas presents this year. Plus, Association of Religious Communities (ARC), located in Danbury, distributes our boxes to children who are really in need. Our shoeboxes are their only Christmas gift. Bravo and blessings to everyone who helped to share this Christian message of love!
