ShoeBox Ministry

My dear Mother taught me how to have a giving heart. So whenever I find excellent deals that I don't use/need, I'll buy them just to donate them. One of my favorite organizations to donate items to is The Shoe Box Ministry. They have wish lists even on their website. The easiest items to get cheap is what The Shoe Box Ministry needs, toiletry mainly. The woman who runs this is super nice and so grateful for the donations she gets, that's another reason I love donating to this organization. On The ShoeBox Ministry website they have all the locations for drop offs.
  • 1 regular-size bottle shampoo (or 14 hotel/travel size)

  • 1 regular-size bottle conditioner (or several travel size)

  • 1 can shaving cream*

  • 1 tube toothpaste

  • 1 adult toothbrush

  • 1 washcloth (new or clean used)

  • 1 month supply women's sanitary products*
