Operation Christmas Child Packing Party
November 5, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Operation Christmas child will be hosting an event called “Assemble the Shoeboxes” on Saturday, Nov 5 from 2-5PM. By sending boxes, we are part of proclaiming the Gospel as a demonstration of God’s love in a tangible way to children. Individuals, families, or groups may fill boxes. Packing 1 shoebox generally takes 15-30 minutes. You are invited to stay longer.
Our congregation has done a wonderful job donating items. We are still in need of 33 pencil pouches with closures, 8 big bars of soap, 65 wash clothes, 20 toothbrushes, 20 toothbrush holders, all size socks, and 70 flip-flops. There is a donation barrel around the corner from the Food Pantry box. Thank you for your participation in this congregational event.
Shoebox Shipping Costs
Each box costs $10 to ship. Our target for boxes is 200 which will require $2,000 for mailing. If you would like to donate for the shipping, please mark “OCC Shipping” on your check memo line.
