Christmas boxes

So, my church (which is conveniently situated in the downtown eastside) is putting together christmas boxes for residents of the community/our neighbours. I am hoping to get together a few (and, when i say a few, i mean lots) of boxes to donate to this drive. As you know, i love the downtown eastside, and think that there are phenomenal people there, many of whom need our help. So, here are a few of the items that are suggested for the shoeboxes...

pack of cigarettes with a lighter scotch-taped ot it= nirvana!
two ensure (or other brand) of protein/meal replacement shakes
Gift card (10$) including places like:
  • Tim HOrtons (the favourite!)
  • McDonalds
  • 7/11 stores
  • Starbucks
  • A&W
  • Army and Navy
Phone Cards (10$) for family calls
Two granola bars (favourite is Nature Valley Sweet and Salty bars)
a new paperback novel
thermal gloves (avail at Army and Navy). Cost about 5$ but are very warm: they look small, but expand to fit most hands
wollen hats.

please no products like mouthwash or aftershave that contain alcohol...

let me know if you want to help!!! :) also, if you want to forward this to your friends, that would be great. Give me a message if you want more information :)
