This is a box for Operation Christmas Child for a girl 10-14 years of age.

This is a box for Operation Christmas Child where you pack a shoebox (in this case a boot box) full of useful items for a boy or girl in age ranges for 2-4, 5-9. or 10-14 years of age.

To offset shipping cost a donation of $7 is requested and if you do so online you can find out what country the box ended up in .

There are further details of what to pack and not to pack here.

I wanted to pick useful everyday items that could be used for play or for real, and as everybody eats, included a few small items for food preparation and serving.

For this box I packed the following in a plastic boot box that can be used to store the items when not in use, or as a wash basin.   All items are new; some were from clearance at Walmart or K-Mart, a couple from Ebay and the rest are dollar store items.
