Operation Christmas Child

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD (i.e. “SHOEBOXES 2020”)

GOOD NEWS! GREAT JOY!!

IT’S SHOEBOX PACKING TIME but, like everything else this year, it won’t follow our “normal” format. Instead of a Saturday morning PACKING PARTY where we all come together, we will schedule small groups (6 or less) to come morning, afternoon, or evening of Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, October 28, 29, 30, and 31st to the parsonage (now OASIS). We will all be wearing our masks, of course. If you prefer to work with only your immediate family, we will honor that request. Please call me (920-495-7084) to schedule a time.

If you have items to donate, there will be a Rubbermaid tote on the back stairs of the parsonage where you may drop them off. As usual, small toys are the most needed items. If you are NOT comfortable shopping as you did in past years, please make a donation marked “SHOEBOXES” and items will be purchased or your donation will be applied toward the cost of shipping ($9.00 per box).

Remember that what goes into these boxes is FUN, but what comes out of OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD is ETERNAL! We have a part in bringing joy and hope to the hurting children of the world.

Thank you for your help and your prayers.
