Operation Christmas Child

Don't forget about our Mom's Night Out on Thursday, November 5th. It will be at 7:00 PM at First Baptist Church. (Please note that childcare will NOT be provided.) We will pack and wrap our Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes while enjoying fun and fellowship. Please refer to your newsletter for more details about what to bring. After the boxes are completed, we will make arrangements to get them to the nearest dropoff point, and then they will be off on their journey to reach children in another part of the world! This is a great opportunity to teach your children about being generous towards others and being thankful for what they have!

For more information about the Operation Christmas Child Program, visit the website or read the article in our October newsletter. If you didn't get a brochure with labels for the shoeboxes, you can download them here. Our group will cover the suggested $7 shipping cost for as many boxes as possible. However, if you wish to make a donation, you can do so online rather than placing a check in your shoebox if you wish. You can go here to do so. This option allows you to actually "track" where your shoebox goes - how cool!

Also, if you'd like to print out a coloring page for your child to complete and include in your shoebox. you can do so here (click on "Coloring Pages" to download the pages).

This was our 2008 OCC Mom's Night Out. In our first year participating, our group filled 39 shoeboxes - Go Moms!
