For years, Life 102.5 listeners have shared hope by providing kids in Madison and the surrounding areas with Shoebox Gifts for Kids. This year, thanks to the help of Iron Mercantile, you can make sure as many kids as possible have a Merry Christmas.

As you shop for all the things on your Christmas list, would you mind picking up a few extra things?

Your generosity will provide kids with a gift to open on Christmas morning. It also gives YOU the opportunity to practice generosity during this Christmas season!

It’s easy! Grab a shoebox, fill it with small items, wrap it up, and write the gender and approximate age of the ideal recipient on the outside and drop it off at any one of our locations. We’ll do the rest! (Please note: don’t include bows or ornaments on the boxes as they are likely to be broken or lost).

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.

Drop off your shoebox gifts beginning November 21. The gift drive wraps up December 12.

Drop off your gift at any one of these convenient drop-off sites:
