It is time once again to fill boxes of hope for delivery to children around the world through Operation Christmas Child! You can find OCC shoeboxes on a special table in Fellowship Hall. Ideas for packing the boxes can be found in “How To Pack a Shoebox” brochures or online at www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/pack-a-shoe-box. Please take, fill and return these boxes no later than Sunday, November 14, 2021 along with a donation of $9 (per box) for shipping and handling which can be paid online at www.samaritanspurse.ca/operation-christmas-child-ways-to-give (please print a receipt and place with your boxes) or by check made payable to “Samaritan’s Purse”. If you use the “Follow Your Box” feature online, you can also discover the destination of your shoebox!
You can also use the “Build a Shoebox For Me” function online for $25 (again, please print out a receipt so that we can count your “virtual boxes”). You never have to leave home! Boxes created online are not only super easy to create, but also are reported to pass through Customs in countries which are more difficult for missionaries to penetrate.
If you have any questions about Operation Christmas Child or need delivery or pickup of boxes, please call Nancy Holley at 261-262-5238 or 713-294-5035.
