Operation Christmas Child
Please have shoe boxes to Church by November 17th
Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse, an international relief organization that works around the world. From Children to Seniors, people pack shoebox gifts each year to bless children across the globe and at home.
There are different ways you can help:
1. Pack a shoebox.
2. Donate items for a shoebox.
3. Donate $9 to ship a shoebox.
Packing a shoebox is easy, and a fun family activity. Choose to pack a box for a boy or girl from 3 different age groups. You can use any average size shoebox or we have some available Sunday mornings.
Shop for items to fill a shoebox. You can find a list of suggested items on the Missions board or online. Please no liquids, toothpaste, or candy.
You can leave a message in the box if you wish, and you should pray over the box. Before closing the lid, place the suggested donation of $9 on top so it's easy to find (Checks can be made out to "Samaritan's Purse"). When closing the box, please use a rubber band (NOT tape) and make sure it is properly labeled with age group and gender.
Thank you for your support of kids around the world this Christmas!
