Operation Christmas Child
This year we have a few options for packing shoe boxes. You can pack them in person, online, or donate money and let us do the packing for you.
We have information and supplies in the foyer of the church for you to pack your own box. We also have several left over items and already contributed items for Operation Christmas Child. In order to pack nice boxes, we need the following items or you may give money for them to be purchased.
- Deflated balls
- Washcloths (Walmart has a great multi pack)
- Older boy socks
- Cars or other boy toys
We do not need items other than what's listed. Thank you!
You can pack a shoebox online through Samaritan Purse's website! The total cost for one box, including shipping, is $25. Our online goal is 50 boxes, but if we meet that goal, we will create a new one! Visit our Goal Page to start packing.
If you want to pay $25 to have a box packed, but you don't want to do it online, you can give through the church offering. Make sure you write OCC on your check so we know where it is supposed to go! We will collect the money and purchase the boxes online for you. You can also pay for postage for the boxes we are packing here at the church ($9 each), or donate money for us to buy some of the supplies we still need to create really great boxes. Thank you for your faithfulness in giving!
At the end of the collection time we will add together the number packed in person, online, and through the church offering and let you know how many we were able to pack!
