Year-Round shopping for Operation Christmas Child shoe box gifts helps provide supplies for the church packing parties. It’s also a great way to collect items for your personal shoe box gifts.
January’s Items of the Month are hats, gloves and scarves. These are great to include in any box no matter the climate of where it will land. Gloves are used as protection when taking pans out of open fires. Even in warm areas, it sometimes gets very cold at night so hats are needed and welcome.
Pick up a calendar of the suggested items for each month of the year. Leave donations in the boxes located in the church foyers. Financial donations should be placed in an offering envelope marked OCC gifts or OCC shipping. For more information, contact Michelle Williams, 740-215-7519.
