Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child_Event Header.png

Operation Christmas Child is filling shoeboxes with fun items and sending them around the world so that children can learn about Jesus. Pick up your shopping list from the OCC table and return items to the table by Sunday, November 12.

Some important information for you to note as you begin "packing," there have been some changes made this year. The items Samaritan Purse is requesting we do not include in our shoeboxes are:

- Candy and toothpaste
- War-related items
- Seeds, chocolate or food
- Liquids or lotions
- Breakable items (such as snow globes or glass containers)
- Aerosol cans

The cost for shipping has increased to $9 per shoebox this year.
