The Foundation Academy has already begun its season of giving for the upcoming holidays. 

The school is partnering with New Missions for its annual Shoebox Drive.

New Mission's Shoebox Drive aims to collect shoeboxes filled with gifts for children in need in Haiti. 

School supplies, hygiene items, toys and other small gifts make a big difference in the lives of Haitian children and their families.

Foundation Academy's Plant Street and Tilden campuses are participating in the mission. 

Although the Tilden campus is ending its drive this Friday, Nov. 12, the Plant Street campus has only just begun its drive. 

The Plant Street location kicked off its drive on Wednesday, Nov. 10. 

Shoeboxes were distributed during the car line and extra boxes are available in the school's front office. 

The school will host a Shoebox Chapel on Wednesday, Dec. 8. Children are encouraged to bring their shoebox to school that day. The school will offer the shoeboxes to the Lord as an act of worship as they bless the children of the New Missions schools in Haiti with their shoebox gifts.

New Mission's Shoebox Drive will run through Dec. 31.
