The kids and I filled 19 boxes. They each filled one box for each age group: 2-4, 5-9 and 10-14. I filled 7 boxes one of each age group and 1 extra 10-14 girl. I read once that the older group does not get as many boxes filled, so I did one extra.
This year, our church was a collection center so ,naturally, I signed us up to volunteer. So here the kids helping to count and sort the boxes.
Our church collected 2,823 shoe boxes and packed 143 cartons. That is a lot of kids! I am so happy I got to participate.
Next year, I really want to try and make it to the Processing Center. That would be a true honor. The nearest one is 8 hours away, so it would have to be a mini vacation.
