Did you know you could fit a soccer ball in a shoebox? Did you know that it’s a big deal? A soccer ball fits in a shoebox when it’s deflated. It’s a big deal when you put it - along with a small air pump -in an Operation Christmas Child (OCC) shoebox! Buy a soccer ball and an air pump…you could make a difference in an entire village, as kids gather together to play a game. It may be the first time they have ever played with a ball!
It’s also a great time to do this - the June OCC item of the month is toys! We’re collecting for Operation Christmas Child (OCC) 2018 Shoeboxes year-round in preparation for a great packing party this November. Working year round gives us extra time to acquire special items for the shoebox at reasonable prices. Soccer balls aren’t the only option for OCC shoebox toys though. For more suggestions, visit the OCC website. Just remember - no candy, food, or liquids.
We’re collecting for Operation Christmas Child (OCC) 2018 Shoeboxes year-round!
We’re doing this to get ready for a great packing party on November 5, 2018. Working year round gives us extra time to carefully choose special items for the shoebox. These shoeboxes really matter. An OCC shoebox might be the only gift a child ever receives. Even if you can’t make it, you can participate by donating something to include in the shoeboxes. Items must be new. For a complete list of accepted items, please visit our Operation Christmas Child page. Donations may be dropped off at Immanuel at any time. Please drop off your donations in the bin just outside of Fellowship Hall by the children’s ministries bulletin board. If you have any questions, please contact Trephina Bedell, firstname.lastname@example.org or 847-359-1549
