A Shoebox Journey Begins!




The amazing journey of a shoebox gift begins with YOU! And you only have 14 days left to put your shoebox together for one special boy or girl.


South Calgary Community Church is helping to make the journey a successful one this year.

On Wednesday (Nov 3), South Calgary was appointed the Shoebox Drop-off Centre for the Southwest quadrant of Calgary. The Shoebox National Collection week is coming quickly - Nov 15th to Nov 21st - and we anticipate our building will be shoebox central!


We could definitely use your help greeting people, receiving shoeboxes, and gathering information. Could you volunteer for a 2.0-to-2.5-hour time slot? Consider helping us for one time slot between Wednesday November 17th and Sunday, November 21st. Lynn in office looks forward to talking to you.


Volunteer time slots available:

  • Wednesday, Nov 17 (5:00–7:30pm)

  • Thursday, Nov 18 (5:00–7:30pm)

  • Friday, Nov 19 (12:00–2:30pm, 2:30-5:00pm. 5:00-7:00pm)

  • Saturday, Nov 20 (10:00am–12:00pm, 12:00-2:00pm, 2:00-4:00pm)

  • Sunday, Nov 21 (10:00am–12:00pm, 12:00-2:00pm, 2:00-4:00pm)

Remember to pick up your shoebox in the church lobby on Sunday, or pop into the office next Monday – Thursday.
