The time is now!
Baymonte’s annual Operation Christmas Child shoe box collection is now in full swing. Last year, our students filled 633 shoe boxes with love (as well as hygiene items, school supplies, candy, clothes & toys) for poverty-stricken children around the world. Each box is a tremendous Gospel Opportunity that spreads the Good News of God’s love to the far corners of the world, and children receive gifts that are total blessings in their lives.
Watch your teacher’s weekly newsletters for details on how your class is filling boxes. Please remember that we almost always run short on the shipping costs of $7/box. If anyone would like to contribute to the overall shipping, please talk to your teacher or Mrs. Jones.
Middle School Students
We are excited about our new approach to filling boxes in the Middle School! The students set a goal of 200 boxes. Please send your contributions of gift items and shipping money to your home room teacher. Assuming we get a flood of donations, the students and faculty are planning to celebrate with a packing party and BBQ lunch on Thursday, November 17th.
Please join us on Friday, November 18th, as we have a schoolwide assembly to collect all of our filled boxes and pray over them before sending them to the Relay Center in Santa Cruz. Specific time and location (weather dependent) will be announced later.
