YOUNG LIFE CORE VALUE #5: GREATNESS COMES FROM GIVING

OCC PACKING PARTY!

This Friday we are putting one of our core values into practice and packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child!  These shoe boxes filled with toys, clothes, hygiene items and more will be sent to a child overseas who otherwise probably wouldn't get anything for Christmas.  We are asking that everyone brings some stuff to help us fill boxes as well as $10 to send along with each box to cover shipping costs.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

Toys: Include items that children will immediately embrace such as toy cars, yo-yos, jump ropes, balls, stuffed animals, etc.

School Supplies: pens, pencils and sharpeners, crayons, markers, notebooks, paper, solar calculators, colouring and picture books, etc.

Non-liquid Hygiene Items: toothbrushes, bar soap, combs, washcloths, etc.

Clothes and Accessories: T-shirts, socks, hats, sunglasses, hair clips, jewelry, etc.

$10: Each box needs $10 to cover shipping costs.
