Operation Christmas Child Is Here!

On September 26, 2013, in Community Outreach, Featured-Auto, by CommunityOutreach

OCC13web

Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan’s Purse works with local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ.

You can help bring this Good News to a child by picking up a Christmas Box at the Operation Christmas Child booth starting October 13th. Then determine whether your gift will be for a boy or a girl, and the child’s age category: 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14 and mark the label. Next, fill your box with new items such as:

  • SCHOOL SUPPLIES: Pens, pencils and sharpeners, crayons or markers, stamps and ink pad sets, writing pads or paper, solar calculators, coloring and picture books, etc.
  • TOYS: Small cars, balls, dolls, stuffed animals, kazoos, harmonicas, yo-yos, jump ropes, small Etch A Sketch, ® toys that light up or make noise (with extra batteries), Slinky, ® etc.
  • HYGIENE ITEMS: Toothbrush, toothpaste, mild bar soap (in a plastic bag), comb, washcloth, etc.
  • OTHER: T-shirts, socks, ball caps, sunglasses, hair clips, toy jewelry, watches, flashlights (with extra batteries)
  • A PERSONAL NOTE: You may enclose a note to the child and a photo of yourself or your family. (If you include your name and address, the child may write back.)
  • DO NOT INCLUDE: Used or damaged items; war-related items such as toy guns, knives or military figures; chocolate or food; out- of-date candy; liquids or lotions; medications or vitamins; breakable items such as snow globes or glass containers; aerosol cans.

Please include at least one item a child can immediately embrace such as a stuffed toy, doll, ball or toy truck.

Place a rubber band around each closed shoebox and drop it off at Shoreline Community Church by November 10th.

Please don’t forget to donate $7 or more for each shoebox you prepare to help cover shipping and other project costs. You can give online by using our “Follow Your Box Donation” option, or you can write a check to Samaritan’s Purse (note “OCC” on memo line) and place it in an envelope on top of the gift items inside your box. If you or your family are preparing more than one shoebox, please make one combined donation.

Thank you so much for your heart to help a child in a 3rd world country, to hear the Good News about Jesus Christ!

In His Name,
