This time of year there are so many families in need of assistance and although there are many organizations available, they can’t possibly help everybody. So what better way to help then by taking action?
Troublesome’s “Spirit of Giving” Christmas Shoebox event is in its second year and we are pleased to be partnered with FOX 12 Oregon and My Fathers’ House Shelter in Gresham, Ore. This year we will be collecting… you guessed it, shoeboxes – filled with gifts that will be delivered to local children in need this year. Last year we were able to help over 64 local children with Christmas. This year our goal is to reach over 100 children!
How does it work?
Decide on a child- BOY or GIRL
Pick age group- 0-1yr, 2-4 yrs, 5-9yrs or 10+
Fill shoebox- toys, hygiene products, clothes, art supplies, ect. (see flyer for a full list of suggestions)
