We are so excited to participate once again in the Samaritan’s Purse ministry called Operation Christmas Child. Most of you are already familiar with it as Baymonte has packed and sent OCC boxes for nearly twenty years! This ministry has delivered more than 100,000,000 shoe boxes to impoverished children in more than 120 countries. It is an amazing way to extend God’s love around the world.
Detailed instructions for filling a box can be found at the OCC website. The items to pack include hygiene items, school supplies, toys, clothes/shoes (flip-flops are very popular), and candy. Any unwanted Halloween candy would be a great addition to the boxes.
- War toys
- Breakable items
- Used items
We will bring all the finished shoe boxes out to the blacktop on Thursday, November 20th, at approximately 8:35am, to pray over them before they are taken to a Relay Center in Santa Cruz. Details will be sent home when it gets closer, but please plan to join us! It is a very special time.
