Thank you to all who made our Shoebox Ministry such a success this year. Your contributed boxes and online contributions enabled us to distribute 244 gift-filled shoeboxes to individuals in need in the local area. Through Ridgefield Social Services, we gave shoeboxes not just to children but also to seniors. In fact, Jesse Lee's team of Shoebox Angels again teamed up with RSS and Kohl's to bring holiday cheer to seniors, helping them to select warm clothing (all paid for by a very generous donor to RSS) and providing them with shoeboxes full of goodies. Association of Religious Communities (ARC), located in Danbury, distributed our boxes to children who are really in need. Our shoeboxes are their only Christmas gift.
