Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child

OCC_logo    2020

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 we would never normally come into contact with.  This year the church has committed to provide soccer balls (and pumps) in each shoe box, therefore, the items we are collecting 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, 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!
