Letter from Scarlette Jasper – CBF Missionary, Southern Kentucky

Olive Branch Ministries Christmas Boxes for Appalachia Program
*This Christmas box may be the only Christmas gift that many of these children receive.*

SUGGESTED ITEMS FOR EACH BOX:

ALL BOXES -small sizes are okay
Soap or body wash in a zip lock bag, shampoo, conditioner in a zip lock bag, toothbrush, toothpaste, brush/comb, washcloth,age appropriate school supplies (pens, pencils, etc.), hat, gloves

BOXES FOR MCCREARY COUNTY – ABOVE ITEMS PLUS:
High School (100+ boxes needed) : $10 gift card to Walmart, Family Dollar or Dollar General, deodorant, and other items you would like to include: perfume, Axe body spray, wallet, jewelry, nail polish, socks, etc.

Kindergarten – 6th Grade (1,000 boxes needed): $5 - $10 gift card to Walmart, Family Dollar or Dollar General, other items you would like to include: markers, age appropriate toys, nail polish, lip gloss, jewelry, hair bows, books, card games, Legos, etc.

BOXES FOR OTHER COUNTIES (500 boxes needed) – Above items plus gift cards, age appropriate toys or other items.  There are a variety of ages and genders in these counties that we minister to.  Please identify what age/gender that the box is for.  Specifics can be given if you would like to prepare boxes for these specific needs.

I request gift cards in place of a clothing item.  Our children vary in sizes and do not always wear the size that is the standard age size and this way they can get something that they can pick out for themselves.  Some have inquired about other gift cards. McCreary County has an Arby’s, McDonalds, Subway and KFC.  If you would prefer me to shop for you, please make contributions payable to: Olive Branch Ministries and denote Christmas Boxes in the memo line or online through CBF here.

  • Please no violent or war related items

  • If you would like to send candy, please do not put in the boxes.  Candy absorbs the soap taste and smell making it inedible.  Please send in a separate bag and I will make sure it gets distributed to the children.

Thank you and blessings!
