Red Box WMU Mission Project for NC Correctional Institute for Women

This year – 2019 – The TBA WMMU will be collecting 300 pair of one size fits all gloves.  Dollar Tree did have these gloves in Brevard and Hendersonville.

GIFTS FOR INMATES – RED BOXES

Each Christmas, women from all across North Carolina provide gifts to fill approximately 1700 red boxes to be given to women inmates at North Carolina Correctional Institute for Women and Raleigh Correctional Center for Women.  For many of these women our gift is all they receive.  As one woman told us, “Your (WMU) gift has been the only gift I receive at Christmas.  It’s the highlight of my Christmas”.

North Roanoke Association WMU and Buncombe Association WMU provide gifts for the women’s facilities in their area, which means a ministry to an additional 600 inmates.

The gifts are packed in a bright red gift box that is a little larger than a shoebox.  The words “A Gift from North Carolina Baptist Woman’s Missionary Union” are printed on the top of each box.  A Christmas card and scripture tract are included in each box.   Associations participate by sending the needed items or money. Volunteers put the boxes together and pack the boxes.

With an undertaking this large, we must have some guidelines.

Please know these gifts do make a difference.  Thank you for all your work and support in this ministry.

 

GUIDELINES – We must comply with the guide below…no exceptions

Please read all of these guidelines before making your choice.

  1. Since the items and sizes on the list are the only ones approved by the correctional centers, send only those items and sizes. If you send money it will be used to buy the scripture leaflets, Christmas cards, and items not collected.
  2. Send only new items with the price/sticker removed.
  3. Please do not send glass or metal containers, wrapped gifts, or attach scripture verses to items. There are reasons for these requests.
  4. Communicate these guidelines to your women. If possible, have a sample of the item in the correct size, etc. for the women to see at a meeting.
