Last night, three individuals asked about purchasing items for “Shoeboxes”. One hint is that school supplies and summer toys are being marked down now in many stores. Think of crayons, jump ropes, etc.. Another suggestion is to purchase soap, tooth brushes, and washcloths which are always needed. Small dolls, stuffed animals, cars, and marbles are always useful.
