OCC Shoeboxes

Our Shoebox collection continues to grow.  For 2018 we collected

Thanks to all who participated this year.

Fellowship Church is a proud participant with Samaritan's Purse through their annual Operation Christmas Child project.  Each year, hundreds of shoebox gifts are donated to this ministry by Fellowship Church.

"Samaritan's Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world."  For more than fifteen years, we have collected shoeboxes at Fellowship Church.  Our new accumulative total is 1462 shoeboxes with an estimated value over $24,336.  We are praying for even more next year so we hope you will join us.

How to Pack a Shoebox

 

1. Find a Shoebox

Start with an average-size cardboard or plastic shoebox. If you want to wrap it, cover the box and lid separately.  Shoeboxes are currently available at the church.

2. Chose Girl or Boy

Decide whether you will pack a box for a girl or a boy, and the age category: 2–4, 5–9, or 10–14.

3. Fill with Gifts

Select a medium to large “wow” item such as a soccer ball with pump or stuffed animal, then fill with other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies.

4. Pray

Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.

5. Label Your Box

Make sure to affix a label to your box and include your donation to help with shipping.  Labels are available at the church OR you can donate the Suggested $9 online and follow your box to its destination.
