We need 1500 or more

A simple box = a BIG impact
Simple shoebox gifts can change the lives of so many children. Jesus valued children and we have an opportunity, through Operation Christmas Child to reach out and show them they are loved by God. Items are available on Sundays to help fill your shoeboxes. The envelopes you’ll need for your boxes are at the table too.

Note that all the boxes you see in the Gathering Space are EMPTY!

It’s important to not include certain items as the shipment will be held up in customs for months and may not ever get to the children:
No toothpaste, no candy, no food, no bubbles, no shampoo, no conditioner, no hand sanitizer, no glue (glue sticks are ok), no nail polish, no medicine, no Harry Potter, no razors or knives, no breakables, no war-related items (bright colored squirt guns ok)

OCTOBER 14 – We want to begin seeing FILLED boxes come in. So bring them on! Remember to include a $9 donation per box. This money covers the shipping, “The Greatest Gift” booklet and training for locals teaching the children. One check may be written to cover multiple boxes. Make sure it is in the envelope provided and placed inside the box on top. Do not tape boxes, use rubber bands to close them securely.
