Every year we participate in Operation Christmas Child (OCC) as a church. Throughout the year we collect donations and work on different projects for our boxes. This year we will be packing 600 boxes for OCC.
The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God's love in a tangible way to children in need around the world. Through this project, Samaritan's Purse partners with the local church worldwide to share the God News of Jesus Christ and make disciples of the nations.
To pack our boxes, we need:
Other items for boys and for girls
You can also make donations for shipping boxes. Each box costs $10.00. Donations can be made in person or online.
