J-Jireh’s Christmas Shoebox Challenge is Underway!
Our Christmas Shoebox Gift Challenge has officially kicked off. Our goals are to collect 4,000+ shoebox gifts this year and raise $50,000.
In 2016, we served 39 various Shelters, Foster Placement Agencies, Ministries and Organizations and gave away almost 3,000 custom filled gifts with many needed necessities, toys, clothes and personal items.
This year, in addition to the Shelters and Organizations we have already committed to, we have also adopted 2 churches from Rockport and 1 church from Houston whose families have lost dearly because of Hurricane Irma, some have lost everything. We will be providing gifts for children and teens, from infant to 17 years of age, to ease the burden and help with healing and recovery. All the gifts stay in Texas and most are delivered in and around San Antonio and our Hill Country.
