Operation Christmas Child
Want to make a child smile at Christmas this year? Show God's love to a child far away with your shoebox gift to Operation Christmas Child. Boxes, supplied by Samaritan’s Purse, have been ordered but have not arrived. Our Mission team will post the distribution date here when the boxes have arrived.
A $9 donation is requested per box to cover shipping and other project costs. You can include it in the box, or you can pay online at www.samaritanspurse.org, just click on the OCC logo and "EZ Give." Samaritan's Purse makes sure that every child receives a book about Jesus with their box. No candy or toothpaste can be accepted because of custom regulations. Please return your filled boxes no later than Sunday, November 5th to the Missions Tables located in the lower level of the North Campus under the red staircase and in the South Campus in front of Room S219.
