About The Event
First, fill a shoebox! Empty shoeboxes are now available. You can visit www.samaritanspurse.org/ what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/ for ideas of what to put in your shoebox including a letter/note/card introducing your family to the box recipient. What a great way to share the love of Jesus with a child (and their family)! While visiting the website, take time to learn about the journey a filled shoebox takes and how your kindness and support to OCC can multiply into many disciples for Christ. A $10.00 donation is requested with each shoebox to help with the cost of shipping shoeboxes to remote locations of the world. Next, if you do not like to shop, or if you don’t have time to shop, we have a “Build a Shoebox” online option for you. For a $25 payment, which includes the $10 for shipping, OCC volunteers will do the shopping for you. Visit https://sampur.se/3Li3pYG to access our Goal Page. Help us reach/exceed our goal of 50 online shoeboxes. You can scan the QR Code here to access our page. Finally, volunteer to help us during National Collection Week. The positions and shifts available are provided below. What a great way to get your family involved in this meaningful ministry! Liz Carper is the Drop-Off Location Team Lead for Trinity. If you can fill one of the positions at one of the available times, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can call and leave a message for her at 443-889-1386. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent. A meeting will be held in October to go over what is needed during each shift.
