OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan’s Purse, has distributed almost 100 million shoeboxes since 1993. Their mission is to demonstrate God’s love in tangible ways to needy children around the world. Here’s how you can get involved:
- Fill a shoebox for a child. Boxes and labels are available in the narthex
- Donate individual items and place them in the drop box in the Narthex by November 14th. Trinity’s youth are planning a packing night that evening to fill the shoeboxes with your donated items.
- Donate funds to ship one or more boxes. It costs approximately $9 per box. Make checks payable to Samaritan’s Purse (note “OCC” on memo line).
- Pray for the volunteers who are participating in this project and the children that will receive gifts this year.
SHOEBOXES ARE DUE: Sunday, November 18th. Candy and toothpaste are no longer allowed due to customs regulations. For more information, contact Jan Berthiaume at 651-210-0859; Sandy Schoess at 651-357-4352; or Tammy Good at 651-307-5086.
