The Gathering 


Entries received : October 6th - November 16th
Winner drawn: November 17th


Hello friends! Every year, my family and I fill several Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. It's a way for us to bless those less fortunate than ourselves, to love on someone far away through a simple gift. This shoebox, filled with small toys and things, serves as a simple reminder to the recipient that "You are so loved and valued!" 

This year, I wanted to reach even more children by promoting a HUGE giveaway: the new Gathering Board! This giveaway is my way of saying THANK YOU to everyone who decided to fill a shoebox; to every person who decided to make a difference in the lives of children around the world.

So, thank you for your continued support of my small business and THANK YOU for entering my giveaway.

1) Pick up an OCC Shoebox and label with your order OR at either location of Coal Train Coffee Depot (RS/GR)

2) Fill the shoebox with gifts. (Hint: see the Shoebox Gift Suggestions image below).

3) Return the filled and labeled shoebox to either location of Coal Train Coffee Depot (RS/GR) by November 16th.

*IMPORTANT: Give your shoebox to the barista and make sure they record your gift. You will not be entered if your name is not written down.
