Operation Christmas Child
Even amid a global pandemic, we want to collect more shoeboxes than ever before, because now more than ever, children need hope!
National Collection week for OCC is November 16-23 this year. We are in the midst of preparing to send shoeboxes filled with love and the message of hope to children world wide. This year is going to look a bit different as our site is now going to be a Central Drop off location where multiple churches will be dropping their own collections off at the end of the week.
We will be offering a “curbside” drop off with personal protection protocols in place to keep volunteers safe.
Bless Children Around the World Without Leaving Home
Now more than ever, children need great joy! You can give boys and girls in need a tangible expression of God’s love through a gift-filled shoebox packed from your computer or handheld device. In just a few clicks, you can select toys and other fun items to include as well as a letter and photo to delight the heart of a child.
Interested in serving? We ask you to prayerfully consider serving as a volunteer during one of the following collection day shifts:
- Monday, November 16 thru Thursday, November 19: 3:00-5:00PM
- Friday, November 20: 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM
- Saturday, November 21: 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM
- Sunday, November 22: 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM
- Monday, November 23: 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM
We will need able bodied people who can assist with loading a large transportation truck for the final days as community churches will be dropping off their cartons at our site too! Contact Jil Gertz at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign-up or learn more about serving.
