For more than 25 years, OCC has been collecting shoeboxes filled with gifts and delivering them to children in need around the world. With each box, kids experience God’s love in a tangible way and hear the gospel.
Our goal as a church is to collect 300 boxes! Would you consider helping us in one of the following ways?
1. Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Shoeboxes
Boxes are available at our Sunday morning in-person services. Help yourself to one or more, fill them up, and drop off at MBC no later than Sunday, November 15. Visit the OCC website for gift ideas and packing instructions.
You may also donate $9 per box online*. Be sure to check off Follow Your Box to track it to its recipient(s). If you prefer, you may include one check inside one of your boxes to cover each of the boxes you donate. *The $9 per gift is a suggested donation. This donation is critical for Operation Christmas Child to collect, process, and ship shoebox gifts to more than 100 countries. It also provides for ministry materials.
2. MBC Packing Party
No time to DIY but still want to help? No problem! We are organizing a packing party to fill shoeboxes with specific items donated by the congregation. These shoeboxes are separate from the DIYer’s boxes.
Please review the list of items that we are requesting donations for and sign up to let us know what you can bring. Donation drop-off boxes for these items will be available on Sunday mornings.
