Shoebox Monthly Collection
Greenville Alliance Church is starting a monthly collection of items for the Samaritan’s Purse Shoebox Ministry. Check the list below for the “item of the month.”
If you would like to give for the monthly shoebox collection, please put your donation in the container in the narthex. If you enjoy making a shoebox each year, please continue to do so. (This is not meant to replace a shoebox.) The monthly collection is an opportunity to give throughout the year. The schedule is a suggestion, but any of the items can be given at any time.
