Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Collection Week is right around the corner: November 18-25. To find a location near you, visit OCC’s site.
Buying gifts for a shoebox and then packing it is a great way to encourage your kids to share with others and truly understand the meaning that it’s more blessed to give than to receive. You can also include a letter and picture in your box. The shoebox will be a gift to treasure for a child who doesn’t have much. When the boxes are handed out, they include a little booklet called The Greatest Gift. The Gospel message is shared, and that’s exciting. Think about it. A Christmas gift with an eternal impact.
OCC box preparation is in gear around here. From rolling washcloths and securing them with hair ties (practical), to putting together the boxes, to starting the assembly line.
I’d love to hear if you’re involved with OCC!
“Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion
one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous.”
