What is Operation Christmas Child & why are we participating?
Through Operation Christmas Child, children in need are gifted shoeboxes filled with toys, school supplies, and hygiene items. Since 1993, more than 198 million children in more than 170 countries and territories have received an Operation Christmas Child shoebox! Our late employee, Tina Libby was an ambassador for Operation Christmas Child in our community. Every year she organized friends, family, neighbors, and folks at her church to put together hundreds of shoe boxes. We seek to continue her legacy and love of service by engaging our employees, customers, and community in putting together shoe boxes for children in need.
Tina Libby was a dear member of the Skowhegan Savings Bank family for over 25 years. Each day she gave us smiles and made coming to work, fun. She lived a life of service and was dedicated to giving back. Tina's legacy is an example for all of us at Skowhegan Savings to live life to the fullest and to put the needs of others first.
How you can get involved!
Collect items for your box and drop off at your nearest Skowhegan Savings branch, or build your box online.
Place your donated items in a bag with a note inside indicating boy/girl and the age group.
Drop off your bag of donated items to your nearest branch location by Thursday, November 10th. Building more than one box? How awesome, thank you! Simply package the content intended for each box in separate bags. Include a note in each bag indicating boy/girl and what age group. Want to track your box? Let the branch staff know and they’ll make you a copy of the tracking label.
We will take it from here by inserting your content into a pre-purchased Operation Christmas Child shoebox and covering the $10.00 shipping cost per box and delivering to the central Maine drop-off location.
Join us in our goal to provide gifts for over 500 children!

“Tina was so dedicated to making sure kids in need were taken care of. Every year she would work with her church to put together several hundred shoe boxes. I'm proud to help continue that effort to honor her.
