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 14. 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 – Wednesday, October 27, 10am-12pm, YFMB Great Room
An alternative to packing your own shoebox is to participate in a group packing party. Sign up to purchase and bring a set amount of one or more specific items. Bring them to the Packing Party on October 27, and assembly-line pack shoeboxes with the items that you and others bring to the party.
