OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
We are excited to be rolling out OCC for 2023. This past Christmas, we collected 94 completed boxes in just 3 weeks! Our goal for this year is to plan ahead by collecting items each month. We hope to bless as many kids as we can to further the Gospel of Jesus. While we are adding new ways to support OCC, we will also collect boxes in the traditional way of packing and dropping off boxes in November.
The collection items by month:
February - toothbrushes
March - Bar soap & wash cloths
April - Small stuffed animals or toys
May - Flip flops
June - Hairbrushes & Combs
July - Coloring Books, notebooks, crayons, colored pencils, pens & pencils
August - Deflated new soccer balls & manual pumps
September - Plain T-shirts (no pictures or logos)
October - Hats, gloves & socks
There will be a collection box in the church foyer for your donations.
We are also going to purchase shoebox size clear reusable bins with lids - which will help with transportation of water and other supplies after they have received their gospel box. If you would like to participate in this way, you can make your donation by marking your check in the memo for OCC and dropping it off in the church offering box.
