      Can skittles or lifesaver gummies go into the boxes?

      • Occmom

        Those are ok. Suggestion, put them into a ziplock bag.

    • BNL

      Hey Jenny! Just wanted to let you know that the website this yr says no food including lollies,no toothpaste, and no battery opperated toys. I hate for people to buy things that won’t be able to be used. Thanks!

      • Frances

        BNL, please double-check your reference. I looked at the Samaritan’s Purse, Operation Christmas Child, Pack a Shoebox and the list still includes toothpaste, lollipops, and battery operated toys. I have already packed my shoeboxes with these items so please update us. THANKS!

    • ckurgo

      BLN depends where your at still asking for toothpaste and hard candy here in the states. Canada removed these items from their list still on the list here in the states.

      Just an FYI- if you have given in the past you may have gotten a magazine in the mail from Samaritan’s purse. If you can’t do a shoebox the magazine gives you a ton of other gift ideas – like milk, clean water, etc. to choose from.

      Jenny. Great list. There were a few things that should not go in the boxes. The havest candy that is not individually wrapped, plush snakes (as some countries don’t want them in their boxes), and no mouth wash. Thank you for all you do for the ministry to spread the love of Jesus to the children of the world.

    • cindy

      Check out Dollar General Stores, they have most kids summer clothing marked down to $2. Great for shoeboxes.

      Thank you so much for letting people know about this great organization. Last year my mother and I put together 200 boxes and will be doing it again this year. We just had a yard sale this past weekend to try to come up with the $1400 for shipping. We were so blessed last year to get pictures of two little girls in Uganda that received our boxes. A man in our area of Florida seen our cards that had our address on it took the pictures of the girls and sent them to us. It was so wonderful to see the smiles on their faces and to know you helped to put it there!
