Operation Christmas Child

Collection week November 14-21, 2011

 

Demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world through Operation Christmas Child, an outreach of Samaritan’s Purse.  8 million children received shoe boxes last year and over 130 countries have received shoe boxes since 1993.

Filling a shoe box can be a family project, a church or Sunday school project, girl or boy scout group project or get your co-workers involved. 

You can drop-off your shoe boxes at theDove during the following hours:
- November 14th - 17th, 8am-5pm
- November 18th, 8am-12 noon
- November 19th, 11am – 12 noon
- November 20th, 12:30-1:30 pm
- November 21st, 7-8 am
Our address is:
1236 Disk Drive Ste E, Medford OR

After Monday, November 21st at 8 am you will need to mail your boxes to
Samaritan’s Purse, 801 Bamboo Road, Boone, NC 28607

To fill a shoe box: 
Choose a boy or a girl and pick an age category:  2-4, 5-9, 10-14.  Print out a label from OCC website http://www.samaritanspurse.org/index.php/OCC/Pack_A_Shoe_Box/

Fill your box with small gifts, toys, school supplies, hygiene items, hard candy (please double bag candy).  Gift ideas and items not allowed are listed on the OCC Brochures or on their website. 

Include a $7 donation per shoe box to help cover shipping and project costs.  Checks made out to Samaritan’s Purse with a note on memo line of “OCC”.  Put the check inside the box or make your donation on line when you print your label.

You can wrap your box, but please wrap the lid separate from the bottom of the box so the boxes can be inspected.  Put a rubber band around the box and bring it to theDove, or find a location in your area by going to http://www.samaritanspurse.org/index.php/OCC/Drop_Off_Locations/
