With Love in a Box, every box has a story. The story begins with YOU and your organisations who created 2640 large, quality boxes this year!
When boxes were dropped off, volunteers often stayed to help check and sort them. When the boxes piled up, a group of choir moms whipped through hundreds of boxes in an evening. When the task seemed overwhelming, a mother-daughter team brightened the team with their enthusiasm. When we got a request for baby boxes, a volunteer showed up with 15 beautiful complete gifts. When we ran out of soap and toothpaste, a call for help produced an abundance of these. When we asked for backpacks for the often-forgotten teenagers, fantastic colorful backpacks magically arrived.
These are the organizations that helped create the story:
