Partner with 'Christmas Shoe Box Ministry' run by United Methodists in North Alabama


Volunteers work to pack Christmas shoe boxes for children. Special boxes are available.

‘Christmas Shoe Box,’ a United Methodist ministry based in Decatur, Alabama, will partner with Memphis Conference churches to send children’s Christmas shoe boxes to United Methodist missionaries in developing countries.

The Disaster Response Warehouse in Decatur, Alabama, in the North Alabama Conference of The United Methodist Church organizes the ministry that collects boxes full of small gifts and supplies for children and then ships them to developing countries where United Methodist missionaries and pastors help distribute them to children in local communities.

For information and instructions about how a church or church group may participate, contact Elyse Bell in the Memphis Conference office at 731-664-8480 or
