As the holidays loom, mark your calendars for November 21st, when Life 102.5, in Partnership with Thrivent Financial of Southern Wisconsin, will officially be kicking off the Shoebox Gifts for Kids initiative once again!

As you run around to get all that you’ll need for another successful holiday season, would you mind picking up a few extra things?

This initiative serves families right here in the Madison-area through W.I.N.R.S. For Christ by providing them a little something to open Christmas morning, and it gives YOU and opportunity to practice generosity this holiday season, and model that for your children!

It’s easy. Grab a shoe box, fill it with small items, wrap it up, and write the gender and approximate age of the ideal recipient on the outside. We’ll do the rest! Here’s an idea of some things you might want to include:

  • school supplies
  • hygiene items
  • socks, gloves, hats
  • small toys
  • and more! Use your imagination.

You’ll be able to start dropping off packages November 21st, and we’ll wrap things up (no pun intended) December 16th.

Stay tuned for drop off locations!

Thank you for your heart for Madison,
and for making a difference in the lives of families this Christmas.
