Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes
Each year, people pack shoebox gifts to bless children in need around the world. Churches and groups collect these boxes the third week of November. Then, thousands of volunteers inspect and prepare the shoeboxes for international shipping.
This year we will have two ways to be involved in Operation Christmas Child. There are boxes for you and your family to take home and fill as usual. Or you may take part in the church project, Families on Mission.
Families on Mission Project
Go to libertypark.org/occ to sign up to purchase items needed for our boxes, and get them to the church by October 29. Some items still needed include: sunglasses, sewing kits, tennis balls, baseballs, small stuffed animals, combs, toothbrushes, small toy cars or boats, and more! Be sure to check the online list.
Families on Mission Day: On November 14, bring your family and friends to the church to help fill up 200 boxes with gifts! If you have any questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
