Shoeboxes for Kids - 02/06/16

For the second year in a row, St. Luke participated in the "Shoeboxes for Kids" project, along with St. Matthew Church, N. Royalton and St. Innocent Church, Olmstead Falls. The project involved preparing shoeboxes with school supplies, small gifts, and hygeine supplies for students at an elementary school in Ohio City.

Note of thanks from the school after they distributed the shoeboxes:

The shoeboxes were a huge success again! The kids loved it all. The toothbrushes, socks, washcloths, and pencils were especially appreciated. I heard kids upstairs were already putting on the deodorant! One of my students insisted on putting on the socks and another was brushing his teeth in the bathroom after school. I'm still amazed how simple hygiene items are so valued by these kids.
