Shoeboxes for BUMP – Christmas 2017


We are delighted to continue our tradition of fostering a relationship with the Blackfeet by donating items for their children. Financial situations on the reservation are difficult for many. For some children the items in our shoe boxes are the only gifts they receive at Christmas.
Three Different Ways to Complete the Gifting
1.)  Assemble and wrap a standard size shoe box with gifts for a girl or boy of the age range you choose – newborn to 2, 3-7, 8-12 or 13-17. Suggested gift items include small toys, school supplies, hygiene items, winter gloves and scarves, etc.
2.)  Purchase some of the suggested gift items and deposit them in the box in the fellowship hall (Covenant UMC) or deliver them to the church office at 512 Logan Street (St. Paul’s UMC).
3.)  Give a monetary donation. Please make your check out to Covenant UMC or St. Paul’s UMC with “BUMP Christmas Shoe Box Project” on the memo line.
We hope EVERYONE will join us at a wrapping party at St. Paul’s on December 6 at 6 PM (following Wednesday Night Dinner) to culminate this meaningful mission project. United Methodist Women from both churches, youth, and individuals have purchased items to include in these gifts. Others have filled their own individual boxes or purchased individual items to be included and those may be taken to the office before that evening or brought to the event. If you are able to come on the afternoon December 6 at 2:00 PM, your help organizing the gifts will be appreciated. You do not have to commit ahead of time, but if you have questions, call Vicki Weida at 439-8390.
