Operation Christmas Child

Samaritan's Purse

"Operation Christmas Child"

 

It's once again time to pack shoeboxes for this amazing ministry!

Start planning NOW to be a part of this great opportunity to bless a

child this Christmas! Filling the boxes is fun and can help change a child's life forever!

 

MARK your calendar now for...

Shoebox packing party (gym) - Wednesday Nov. 18th 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm

OCC Distribution Center (Dallas) - Saturday Dec. 5th  2:00 pm to 6:00 pm

(Our volunteers will meet at 9:30 am and will carpool to Texas)

Sign up here to volunteer!

 

You can choose to:

...Fill your own shoebox

...Purchase items - watch for collection boxes in the foyer

...Donate money to purchase items (checks payable to

Goodrich with OCC 2015 on the memo line)

 


~How it works~

 

1. Wrap an empty shoebox (lid separately) in festive Christmas paper.

Pray for the child who will receive your box.

2. Decide on gifts for a boy or girl ages 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14

3. Fill the box with gifts for your child - Be creative but here are some suggestions:

toys, cars, dolls, stuffed animals, jump rope, yo-yo, school supplies,

games, crayons, books, toothpaste/brush, bar soap, wash cloth, hair ribbons,

ball caps, hard candy (double bagged - no chocolate)

4. If possible, include a check payable to: Samaritan's Purse for $7.00 with

OCC on the Memo Line to help cover postage.

5. Boxes cannot contain any war related items (toy guns, knives, military figures, etc.) liquids, lotions, vitamins, or breakable items.

6. Bring a friend and join the packing party on Nov. 18th in the gym from 5:00 to 7:00 pm!
