Red Box 2024 - Gifts for Inmates

For many incarcerated women, a shoe box full of toiletries may be the only Christmas gift they receive. If your church or group is interested in participating in this ministry, please contact your association office. They will give your church information on different types of items to collect, where to bring the donated items and the date they are due.
