Last year was the first year I packed plastic shoe boxes.  I have to tell you, I really do love them.  They are like an extra gift to the child.  So, I was super excited when said they wanted to giveaway a set of 12 Sterilite shoe boxes to one Clip with Purpose reader!!  All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this blog post.  Facebook comments will not count.  One entry per person; duplicate comments from the same person will be deleted.  A winner will be chosen at random on MONDAY OCTOBER 8, 2012!  Good luck. is offering a Set of 12 of these Sterilite 6 quart plastic shoe boxes to one lucky donor. By using plastic, you give the gift of carrying precious water or storing food to the OCC families. These plastic shoeboxes hold up longer than the traditional cardboard shoe box and are more durable than the options you’ll find at local discount stores. These plastic shoe boxes become a valuable part of your Operation Christmas Child gift.

    So nice of you and to do this. Thank you! Good luck to everyone!

  7. Penny Cowan says:

    I’ve been using these boxes for OCC for the past few years after I heard how the kids use them afterwards. I found some really cute boxes with pink designs on the lids for the girls this year. Would love to win these boxes to share with student organizations at my University who are joining in the OCC project!

  8. Jane Landis says:

    The plastic shoe boxes are great for so many reasons. They provide a great way to carry water when the well is so far away. Love them.

  9. Pamela Barnes says:

    Would love to win these boxes for our Packing Party! 🙂

  10. rowena___. says:

    oh my gosh, what a generous giveaway! we’ve never been able to send plastic boxes because we try to use all our funds on the contents and shipping, so this would be a real gift to the children that we couldn’t provide ourselves. thank you for the chance to win!

  11. Channon Bell says:

    This is such an awesome ministry that I’ve shared with my children for many years! We shop all year long and usually have an overflowing tote full of toys & necessities to send! We pack at least 12 boxes every year (6 boys/6 girls). I love using the plastic boxes knowing that it’s an extra gift for the children to use! I purchase Christmas stickers in booklets for $1.00 and decorate each box all over! This is truely a passion for me and pray that one day I may be more involved with packing or delivering these wonderful gifts!

  12. Kris C. says:

    I would love to win these to use for OCC! I hadn’t even thought in the past about the other future uses for plastic boxes – that’s a great way to add to the gift for these kids.

  13. Kerri S says:

    ITs the only way we pack, so it makes it across the world! Would love to have some!

  14. julie c says:

  15. Anita Smith says:

    Plastic boxes are such a blessing to the children. Thanks for doing this!

  16. Susan L. says:

    Thankful to have a business like support my favorite ministry!!

  17. I will have to try the plastic shoeboxes this year! In the past, it has been the cardboard ones.

  18. heather says:

    What a BLESSING this would be! Cardboard shoe boxes are great and free, but the plastic ones are so much more of a blessing to these kids! They can re-use it for so many things. As I was reading this, I thought to myself, “you know you are a hard core ‘shoe-boxer’ when you enter to win some boxes!!” LOL!! Hope I win!! Thanks 🙂

  19. Deborah says:

    This is the first year I have not used plastic shoe boxes. I wanted to use the money for doing more boxes. I would love to have some plastic boxes.

  20. Dottie Peters says:

    Thanks for the offer. I’m always looking for more shoeboxes!

  21. Cheryl Johnson says:

    I like to pack a variety of types of shoe boxes – the clear boxes really make the colors of the contents POP – exciting!

  22. Victoria says:

    I would love to win these. OCC is one of my favorite charities 🙂

  23. Oh!!! How awesome. Who wouldn’t want to win this!! 🙂 Good luck everyone!

  24. Karen says:

    This is a wonderful offer!

  25. Paulette says:

    Ever since hearing that OCC recipients will sometimes use plastic boxes for fetching water …. we have used them ever since for our shoe box gift packing. They can still be decorated with stickers or cut-outs. Have had the blessing to see recipients enjoying sneak peaks of their gift contents through the plastic, too!

  26. Tiffany Wieber says:

    I love Operation Christmas Child! And I love packing shoeboxes! I love to hear stories of children using the plastic shoeboxes to store food, carry water, and keep other items safe and dry. It is a gift within the gift!

  27. Dori says:

    These are my favorite!
    Thanks for donating to a great mission!

  28. Hope says:

    Cool! Do they have the little snap thingys to hold the lids down? We got some last year, and they didn’t have them, so the lids WOULD NOT stay on.

  29. Eric O says:

    These would be awesome! We love the OCC program and our 4 1/2 year old daughter picks out all the items for all the boxes we make every year. This would be an added blessing for us and the kids that would receive them as we would use every one including the 4 we are working on now.

  30. Audrey B. says:

    We send out at least 6 boxes each year (1 for every child in our family). What a blessing the shoeboxes would be to the recipients!

  31. Robin S. says:

    What a wonderful and gracious idea! While I have already purchased my plastic boxes for the year, I know several people who pack many boxes and could greatly benefit from receiving the plastic boxes. As always, thank you for thinking of others!!!

  32. kim lumpkin says:

    Grateful to have a chance to win these storage boxes. This year i have ordered boxes from operation christmas child and we have already used up 100. This would be great to further the gift of love.



  34. Cat says:

    This would be amazing! I have enough materials for 15 shoeboxes this year, but I don’t have 15 boxes to put the items in. Thanks Sterilite!

  35. Kim says:

    I have a lot of oversized shoe boxes that I know I shouldn’t use for OCC so these plastic boxes would really be great for me to use. Thanks for the giveaway!

  36. I
    have had problems with the plastic boxes before with the lids not shutting tight, but if Sterilite boxes work that would be great! Thanks

  37. Sonia says:

    Great to have a chance to win these storage boxes.

  38. Gina H. says:

    Thank you for the fun giveaway! And thank you for your site. I love all the great ideas & love filling shoe boxes!

  39. Suzanne says:

    We will be packing over 300 boxes at church so these would be handy!

  40. dana b says:

    Great idea for a give-away and so nice to see a business supporting OCC! I love using the plastic shoe boxes. They have so many uses for the children who receive them.

  41. sara says:

    Would love to win these! My 13 year old daughter and I are up to 10 boxes this year. Our goal is 15 for next year!

  42. Suzanne says:

    What a wonderful gift from Space Savers! Whoever wins, the Operation Christmas children ultimately win!

  43. I’ve used these boxes for my shoe box gifts for several years. They’re great.

  44. Laura says:

    Oh, how wonderful! I love the plastic boxes!

  45. Karyn D. says:

    I’m eagerly anticipating my annual packing of shoeboxes. These plastic containers would be an additional blessing. 🙂

  46. Myra Ludeman says:

    I hope to win the plastic boxes. I would love to pack some shoeboxes in them. I know they are an extra present for the child receiving the box.

  47. delia jones says:

    What a fabulous giveaway! I need more boxes& prefer the plastic ones. We have 24 partially packed so far.

  48. TerryO says:

    What a wonderful giveaway!
    My family started packing shoeboxes last week.

  49. Vikki Smith says:

    I love to use the plastic shoeboxes for the OCC shoeboxes in order to give the child a place to store the items they receive, or to use for another purpose. Children love containers of varying sizes. I keep thinking that the cardboard shoeboxes might get damp and then not be useable for storage. A more permanent storage is great.

  50. Plastic boxes are great…Go OCC. Thanks.

  51. Jobena Lopez says:

    My kids would LOVE to get these boxes. They work all year making crafts and selling them at craft fairs in the fall to raise money to buy things to pack their boxes. Last year they packed 25 boxes, with a goal of 100 this year. This would help them out a lot!

  52. Lynnetta says:

    I would love to win these to use in my packing!

  53. I love packing shoeboxes…Hope I win These…Thanks.

  54. I’ve been buying stuff all year to pack boxes…These boxes would be a bonus to help me pack….

  55. Taylor Harling says:

    This is so awesome! Thank you so much!

  56. Diane Mathis says:

    We started using plastic boxes after reading that some families used them to store clean water. I can’t imagine being that needy. We are so very, very blessed. Thanks for the opportunity to win the boxes for those precious kids!

  57. Susan Ward says:

    This is an AWESOME Deal from Space Savers, I would love to win the Boxes. I Love packing boxes for OCC. And I just found this Blog this year. Hope I WIN!

  58. James jones says:

    My girls are filling OCC boxes and would be blessed with these.

  59. Elisa Cartier says:

    My grandchildren are filling boxes and would be thrilled to win.

  60. dagmar says:

    i used plastic boxes last year, and decorated them with stickers. easy to pack 🙂

  61. Andrea Roberts says:

    I hope I win!

  62. Jessica James says:

    Plastic shoeboxes are a great alternative for normal shoeboxes!!!

  63. Penelope New says:

    My mother and I packed 11 boxes last year with the “spoils” of my couponing. It is a wonderful time for she and I to visit and talk. These plastic boxes would make our jobs so much easier!

  64. Vanessa says:

    I would love to pack plastic boxes this year! I’ve got ten shoeboxes, but still have time to pack 2 more. 🙂

  65. Marla Brumbaugh says:

    I like plastic shoe boxes. About half of the boxes I have packed are in plastic boxes and I like putting scarves on the inside or fun tape on the outside to decorate them. I know if I win these I will have 12 more boxes packed and ready to go in no time.

  66. Hailey says:

    These look AWESOME!

  67. Julie says:

    Plastic boxes are awesome, the box itself I’m sure is very useful in a third world country!

  68. Bonnie Rohrbach says:

    I have volunteered at the NC Processing Center for the past several years. Although many of the plastic boxes need to be repaired before they can be shipped, the Sterilite boxes seem to hold up well. I’m in dire need of boxes for myself as well as my church!

  69. Sonia says:

    These plastic boxes are awesome. I have not use plastic boxes, but if I win I will.
    Thanks for the change.

  70. Shari Larsen says:

    These would be wonderful! I already have boxes for mine this year, but I would give these to a friend who is doing 100 boxes this year.

  71. says:

    This is a wonderful thing that you are doing. Giving away plastic boxes will help give children some hope and cheer.

  72. Isabella Iglesia says:

    I enter!!

  73. Sherrill says:

    Thank you, That is so generous of you! It doesn’t matter who wins – it’s a win for OCC!!!

  74. Susan says:

    Just did a check and I have more items to put in boxes than I have boxes, so these would be a great help! Sterlite makes great boxes. I like to cut a strip of wrapping paper that fits just inside the box along the vertical sides or line the boxes with bandanas.
    BTW, great to “hear” from you Jessica!

  75. Catherine says:

    I am a teacher and running a small club called Project Aloha. this is a wonderful idea to use these plastic reusable boxes. Thanks for sharing!

  76. Bronwyn says:

    After reading how much use many of the kids get from the items in the shoebox, I can only imagine how much use a plastic box would get!

  77. Susan Thomas says:

    I do love plastic boxes and Sterlite boxes are great. Plastic works best if they are not overfilled. I would love to donate these boxes to my office’s packing party!

  78. Rosalynn Bradford says:

    I have used these plastic shoeboxes for several years. I think it is wonderful that it is something the children can keep on using.

  79. Jessica S says:

    I’d love to win!

  80. Bethany G says:

    This would be great! I always prefer the plastic containers too!! Thanks for the chance!

  81. Diane L. says:

    I like this idea because the box becomes a part of the gift!

  82. Angela says:

    These would be WONDERFUL!! I can’t afford to purchase plastic boxes and it never crossed my mind that the plastic boxes could be used to carry water for the family of the child that recieves the box..

  83. Theresa C. says:

    Praise God! The plastic boxes are a great way of giving an extra gift!

  84. David Garzetta says:

    Whoo-hoo! Thanks so much for the tip. Hope I win!

  85. Maria says:

    What a great giveaway! I buy my plastic shoeboxes from Walmart right now, but I’ll have to check out SpaceSavers.

  86. Gloria Hill says:

    I just discovered your site, and am very encouraged. This is the first year my husband and I are filling shoe boxes for OCC. The plastic shoe boxes make so much sense!

  87. A group of ladies in our MOPS group is having a packing the boxes party early November and I’d love to win the boxes. 🙂

  88. Lynette Vincent says:

    My section in choir is having a party to stuff shoeboxes. It would be great to get this free gift to help us give to more children.

  89. Hannah says:

    Would love to win! Last year we bought ours on sale… missed the sales this year!

  90. Kelli says:

    Would love to pack these boxes! I have lots of items shopped for year round that need to be packed up!!!

  91. Margaret Needham says:

    I pack shoeboxes every year. I usually decorate shoeboxes that Wal-Mart saved for me. Having the plastic would be like an extra gift for the children. I have filled five boxes so far. My goal for this year is 35 boxes. I would love to be the recipient of this generous gift!

  92. Marcy Hays says:

    OCC is close to my heart! I enjoy using the plastic boxes as a practical bonus gift for the child.

  93. Tiffany Smart says:

    Would live to win these!!
    Thanks for the opportunity!!

  94. Sabrina Johnson says:

    Love the plastic shoeboxes. Our church started using them a few years ago and I have a pattern for wrapping paper that you can put inside that makes them looked wrapped.

  95. Stefanie Doane says:

    My husband & I have been buying exactly enough goodies throughout the year to fill exactly 12 Shoeboxes! Maybe this is meant to be for us!! 😉

  96. Maidee Ferguson says:

    What a wonderful thing to give away shoeboxes. It will be greatly appreciated to whomever gets them. At 73, I have been packing shoeboxes from the beginning. Last year, my daughter and I packed 48. It is a passion of ours. We realized some years ago the plastic boxes were the way to go, but it gets kind of expensive when you pack so many — although, we never really considered the cost because we loved making children happy.

  97. Billie Kay says:

    We have a packing party in a month or so and would love to have these boxes 🙂

  98. Gayle Fritz says:

    Every year 6 ladies and I, in my area get together all the items for 100 shoeboxes and take it to the local youth facility were teenage girls and boys are incarcerated. They help us pack the boxes and pray for each and every child that God has already chosen to receive the boxes. We always use the plastic boxes. Thanks for the chance to win some.

  99. Jessica B. says:

    how wonderful! we use plastic shoeboxes when we pack for OCC at our church. they are fabulous! 🙂

  100. Dawn Purtle says:

    Thanks for offering this to everyone!

  101. BRANDI HOFF says:

    I love using the plastic shoeboxes!

  102. Tanya says:

    My boxes are packed but we just found out my kid’s school is going to be packing boxes!! These would be perfect!

  103. Andrea Wikel Fiske says:

    Awesome, I sure would like to win these for my church to use. We are a small non-denominational Evangelic Christian church and last year did just under 50 boxes, I’m aiming to double that this year, going for 100. These would sure help out!!!!! Thanks!!!!!!

  104. Melissa Brookshire says:

    I’d love to win! Thanks for the chance!

  105. Johnni Wolfe says:

    What a great giveaway!

  106. denise vick says:

    need a few more to finish. would be great to win!

  107. Shirley Quick says:

    Oh how wonderful, such a nice thing they are doing for us. I am bagging up my shoebox items in grocery bags to see how many I have filled. Shoeboxes are on my shopping list this week.

  108. Gina says:

    The kids would have so much fun filling these up for other children!

  109. Melinda Downey says:

    I am in Children’s ministry. This year for our Christmas outreach we will be doing operation Christmas Child. Our children are excited about doing this. Because of the excitement our childern are showing, all our Adults are getting involved aswell. I hope this will be the first of many years standing together with you in this wonderful outreach. thank you.

  110. Elizabeth says:

    I would love to win these shoeboxes for my church’s packing party.
