Operation Christmas Child

Categories: Events

Grace Lutheran Church and Schools will be participating in Operation Christmas Child.  We ask that you and/or your family pack Christmas shoe box gifts filled with the love of Christ for needy children somewhere in the world.   Each shoebox is filled with the gifts you choose (i.e. toys, hygiene items, candy, clothing).  Samaritan’s Purse then inserts into the shoebox a Gospel booklet sharing the love and salvation of Jesus in the language of the receiving child.  Any shoebox will suffice.  Special OCC shoeboxes are available in the Narthex, church or school office.  Return your packed box to the Narthex, church or school office by Monday, November 5th.   A $7.00 donation per box is requested to cover shipping/processing costs.  If you pay online through Samaritan’s Purse, you may follow your box to its destination.

Please see www.samaritanspurse.org/occ  for packing label and other information.

Call or email Kitty Thweatt with any questions:   kkthweatt@cox.net   (760)741-6224

 

*Since 1993 Samaritan’s Purse has delivered over 94 million shoeboxes to children in 130 countries!

This year OCC plans to reach the 100 millionth child with the Good News of God’s love.
