How You Can Help
Wintonbury expects to collect over 10,000 shoe boxes from churches all around Connecticut. You can help by:
- greeting guests and helping with shoebox intake.
- packing shoeboxes into shipping cartons.
- loading shoeboxes on the tractor trailer.
- providing snacks and baked goods for volunteers and guests.
- Help especially needed Sunday, November 19, 1:30 - 8pm, when we expect approximately 6,000 shoeboxes on this Sunday alone. Lots of heavy lifting from 5:30 - 8pm! Not a great day for families with young children to volunteer.
Contact Alex R or sign up in the Connection Center to volunteer.
