Want to make a needy child's winter warmer? Consider putting a box together for orphanage! There are over 100 children there today, all in need of the basics. ANYTHING you send will be used and appreciated...I can vouch for that! Note: there is a new Director at the orphanage ( I'll save the details for another post.) So you need to note the NEW address below, if you've previously sent a box. The New Director offers huge thanks for all you have done to help these children. The New Director has been working there in another capacity for many years. I have known her since 2005. She is a wonderful, caring person (Thank God!)
Here is what you do:
HOW TO SEND A BOX TO THE ORPHANAGE
Go to your local post office. You will need to fill out a customs form. You will need to say the contents are worth under $25 even if that's not the case. (Otherwise the orphanage will have to pay on the other end.) You'll have to wrap it REALLY well to prevent theft along the way.(Think duct-tape.) You will need to address it VERY clearly. Write what appears below in BIG BOLD LETTERS.
HOW TO ADDRESS THE BOX:
Director: EKATERINA VLADIMIROVNA REZENOVA
DETSKY DOM #5
SPARTAKOVSKAYA ULITSE 14A
653008 KEMEROVO OBLAST
Remember, for a box to reach them by Russian Christmas, you need to send it by about November 20th! Current needs are still: more hats, gloves, scarves, socks and, most of all, SHOES!
