Help Us Do Shoeboxes for Children on the Navajo Indian Reservation
Duluth/Gwinnett CPA…Looking for Ways to Serve Those Less Fortunate in the United States?
So, thought anymore about shoeboxes for the Navajo Children? We still have over 200 children without sponsors. Please read this short excerpt below from a Counselor/Teacher at the children’s school. If you have already committed to providing a gift please:
• Wrap lid and box separately
• Provide $5.00 for your box (if you are doing more than one box, just send $5.00 not $5.00/box)
• Drop box off at John Dillard’s house 1940 Woods River Lane, Duluth, GA 30097
Need suggestions for box: socks, gloves, hair accessories, card games, school supplies, candy, small bible, diary/journal, note cards, self addressed stamped envelopes so children can correspond with you, matchbox cars, action figures. It doesn’t cost more than $20 to put a great box together.
“Our school is a day/ residential K-8th grade elementary school run by the Bureau of Indian Education. At the present time we have over 120 students 1st -8th grade residing the dormitory Sunday- Friday. Of the student population, 90% do not have running water and over 60% still do not have electricity in the homes. Almost 100% of the students are on the reduce school lunch program and over 80% come from a single parent homes.
I would like to say, “Thank You” for your support in sending out the “Christmas Shoe Boxes” to the students who resident in the Residential Hall during the school year. The students look forward to these boxes each year with great anticipation! To many of these students this will be the only “Christmas Gift ” that they will receive and they know it! Also the Holiday are not always looked upon with excitement, because of the uncertainty of what will happen. Alcohol is often associated with the Holidays and when people are drinking, almost anything can or might happen. So many of our students worry about what the holidays might bring. So the “SHOE BOXES” are one bright spot in their lives during this time.”
Be still and know that I am God!
