Operation Christmas Child

OCC National Collection Week

 

First Christian Church is participating in Operation Christmas Child again this year. We will be a collection and processing center for Longview.

 

We have set a goal of 400 boxes! Let's make it happen!

 

How to pack a shoebox.

We will have a packing party in Disciple House (Gym) on Saturday, October 14 starting at 10:00 a.m. 
 
We will have items available for you to pack and you are encouraged to bring more, such as simple school supplies, toys, flashlights with batteries, tooth brushes (but no tooth paste), combs, shoes/flip flops, socks, underwear and clothing. We hope to have many helpers but if you cannot come you are welcome to adopt a box ($25 donation to help buy supplies/ship boxes), donate $9.00 each for boxes to be shipped, or bring a completed box and leave it in the church office. We will accept the monetary donations until Sunday, October 8th and then use the money to purchase items for the packing party. 
 
Categories are for girls 2-4 years of age, 5- 9 years of age, 10-14 years of age and for boys in the same age ranges. For gift ideas you can go to www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/what-goes-in-my-shoebox-suggestions/.
