Operation Christmas Child
Our OCC goal for 2017 is to pack 300 shoeboxes! Through the month of June we are collecting hygiene items. A box is located in the foyer for your contribution of toothbrushes, soap, washcloths, and combs. THANK YOU! Other gifts that will be needed for our packing party include pencils, pencil sharpeners, crayons, and small stuffed animals. Look for bargains while you are shopping! Mary Lou will be happy to store the gifts you purchase. Reminder: Due to customs regulations we may no longer include toothpaste in our shoeboxes.
Please continue to support the work of OCC through prayer.
- for children, their families, and communities to be transformed by the love of Jesus
- for the safety and health of those who distribute shoeboxes and disciple children
- for shoebox packers – that they will grow as disciples through their service to children in need
