National Shoebox Collection Week 2015 Candy

November 20, 2015: National Shoebox Collection Week 2015: Candy

Today’s final National Shoebox Collection Week tip may surprise you…

The final tip I have for packing your OCC shoeboxes is to add…CANDY!

Yes, you heard me right – a sweet treat seems to be universal. I realize some may not consider this a necessity and may in fact believe they’re not helping the underprivileged by adding candy. However, the simple act of adding a lollipop (in a plastic bag of course) can bring such an amazing smile to a child, especially when everyone around them is receiving the same thing.

Just make sure you don’t add out of date candy or chocolate – make sure to include something your own kids would be excited about receiving themselves.

And perhaps the most important inclusion of all is to add a family picture with a note and your address. Kids loved seeing who their boxes come from and if you add your physical or email address, you might just get a reply back!


The Family Money Minute is made possible by Operation Christmas Child, who reminds us that by saving money, we can make a bigger impact on the lives of needy children around the world.
