R.I. Baker Middle School will once again be accepting gift filled shoe boxes for the Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box Campaign.
Cardboard shoeboxes will be available in the school library however we also encourage sturdy plastic shoebox sized containers as they are very useful to the entire family.
We encourage you to fill a box with a variety of items that will be sent to needy children in countries that have been affected by war, natural disasters and poverty. Once your box is filled you may return it to the school to be picked up by volunteers.
Please indicate whether the box is intended for a boy or a girl and the approximate suitable age of the child that will receive the gift.
Suggested items are: Toys (dolls, stuffed animals, marbles, puzzles, jump ropes, miniature cars) Clothing items(hats, Tshirts, socks) School Supplies(pencils, pens, crayons, coloring books) Non-liquid hygiene items(toothbrush, bar soap(sealed in a plastic bag), washcloths, combs, hairclips) Personal note and photos if desired.
PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE ANY LIQUIDS, FOOD, CANDY, TOOTHPASTE, BREAKABLE ITEMS, DECKS OF CARDS OR ANY TOYS THAT COULD HARM OR SCARE A CHILD
