Christmas CareBox Guidelines

Container: Use a shoe box size plastic container (approximate size 7” wide, 41/2” high and 12” long); the child will be able to use the box.  Please avoid using larger boxes, boxes of the approximate same size are easier to pack and cause less confusion at the time of distribution.  Please do not gift wrap boxes as they must go through customs.  Please tape the lid to the box with good tape going completely around the box.

Gender: The box should be prepared and labeled for a boy or a girl.

Destination: The boxes will be going to Haiti.

Deadline: The boxes should be to us before noon Tuesday, November 10, 2020.

Shipping Cost Donation: Please help us with $6/box for assistance in shipping.  Checks should be made payable to Pathway Outreach Ministries.  Please do not put the shipping money in the box.

Delivery Point: The boxes need to be delivered to New Life Christian Center, 145 Waterline Road, Sardis City, AL  35956.
