Operation Christmas Child

OCC_logo    2022

Each year we support Samaritan’s Purse Ministries through Operation Christmas Child.  We collect items throughout the year and have a “Shoe Box Packing Party” each November.  Everyone in the church shares in this great ministry that reaches people whom we would never normally come into contact.  The items we have collected for Operation Christmas Child this year are listed below:

School Supplies:
Pens, pencils and sharpener, crayons or markers, paper, notebooks, and solar calculators.

Hygiene Items:
Toothbrush, combs, brushes, washcloths, etc.

T-shirts, socks, ball caps, sunglasses, hair clips, flip flops, etc.

Do Not Include:
Used or damaged items, war-related items, chocolate or food, candy, liquids or lotions, medications or vitamins, aerosol cans, toothpaste, or breakable items

And most importantly, be sure that all items can fit into a shoebox!
