OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD – Shoeboxes due by November 16, 2020
Shoeboxes are a great ay to share Jesus and give gifts to children around the world. Each box results in evangelism, discipleship, and multiplication as they grow in Christ and share with friends and family. Magnify, Multiply, Mobiliize!
 
Our goal is to collect at least 100 boxes. We are collecting items for a packing party in October. Please help us fill our OCC donation tubs at church to fill shoeboxes.
Items needed for boxes – boys/girls ages 2-14:
* School supplies or hygiene products (no liquids, gel products, toothpaste, food or candy)
* Clothing & Accessory items (hair ties, hats, bows, socks, underwear, sunglasses, cups, washcloths, comb/brush, toothbrush, etc.)
* FUN & Educational items: toys, games, puzzles, balls, cars, Bibles, books, coloring books. Add a special note, card, or picture.
If you are completing your own boxes, please clearly mark each box with OCC label – boy/girl/ages.
Each shoebox requires a $9 donation for shipping.
Pay online through samaritanspurse.org/occ, print labels needed per box. Or pay with check/cash and place money in one OCC envelope, mark how many boxes payment covers if you are doing multiple boxes. Secure shoeboxes with rubber bands.
