You are invited to a Packing Party!!!

Demonstrate God's love in a tangible way to needy children around the world through Operation Christmas Child. Please join us for fun, fellowship and filling shoeboxes!  There will be a potluck brunch, with fried chicken provided, following the combined 10am worship service.  Please bring a dish to pass and table service - if you forget, no worries! We will have plenty to go around.

We will still be collecting items for the shoebox up until the day of the actual Packing Party on October 22.  Items still needed are hygiene items like toothbrushes (NO toothpaste), comb or brush, wash clothe, soap and soap travel dish, items for older children such as puzzles, games, small musical instruments (harmonica, recorder), trucks for boy 4+ in age, plus tool kits (NO knives) and sewing kits for older children.  Remember to keep in mind the shoebox size when purchasing items.

DO NOT INCLUDE:  candy, toothpaste (this is new due to custom regulations), used or damaged items, war related items such as toy guns, knives, or military figures, seeds chocolate or food, liquids or lotions, medications or vitamins, breakable items such as snow globes or glass containers, and aerosol cans.

If you would like to make a monetary donation to this project, please designate OCC on your donation.  This will go toward purchasing items and the shipping of the boxes.

“I am so happy!  I cannot believe that someone from a different country would send me a gift of exactly what I like: rings and hair bows.  I will keep going to church.”—Vanessa, Columbia
