Operation Christmas Child

It is Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child (OCC) time once again.  Let us join together as we have done in previous years to prepare shoeboxes filled with fun toys, school supplies and hygiene items that will be delivered to children in need around the world as an expression of God’s love.  For many of these children, our gift-filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received.
 
PACK A SHOEBOX
Drive by and pick up a shoebox from Cresthill  with “How to Pack Shoebox” brochures attached.  The brochure includes a $9.00 per box shipment cost envelope and a girl/boy and age group shoebox label.  This pick-up event is to be held on Wednesday afternoon, October 21 from 1 – 2 p.m.  Then on Wednesday afternoon, November 18 from 1 – 2 p.m., you can drop off your filled shoeboxes. 
 
During both of these events, we request you to drive up and remain in your vehicle in front of the covered Cresthill entrance awning.  An individual wearing a facemask will come to your car to give you the OCC cardboard box sheets or to receive your filled shoeboxes.  We will be practicing social distancing,  and no one will be allowed to enter the building or to remain in the parking lot. 
 
BUILD A SHOEBOX ONLINE
Build an OCC shoebox online for $25.00 per shoebox, which also includes the shoebox shipment charge.  By using our custom link below, we are able to track our progress towards our shoebox goal of 100.
