Operation Christmas Child
Now is the time to begin gathering gifts for your Operation Christmas Child gift box. These boxes will be collected to send to impoverished children all around the world. Boxes like the one pictured above have been purchased for you to use. They are available in the church office.
What do you put into the box?
- School supplies (pencils, pens, crayons, notebooks, coloring books, sticky notes, erasers, pencil sharpeners,calculator)
- Personal hygiene items ( toothbrush, comb, bar of soap, washcloth, stick deodorant, nail clips)
- Toys (matchbox cars, jump rope, balls, doll, puzzles, yoyo, marbles, stuffed animal, small-sized tools for older boys, hair bows)
Do indicate which age and gender of child who would be best suited to receive your gift. Age brackets indicated on the Samaritan's Purse leaflets are Boy/Girl 2-4, 5-9, 0r 10-14 years of age.
Please include a check for $9 for shipping and handling. Make checks out to Samaritan's Purse - not the church!!! If you are making more than one box you may make one check for the total amount of boxes.
Lastly, pray for the child who will receive your box!!
