Every year, our church partners with Samaritan Ministries to provide hundreds of shoebox gifts for needy children all over the world. Here are three ways to participate:
- Pack a Shoebox. To find out more about how to pack a shoebox or gift suggestions, visit Samaritan Ministries at this link. Please note that toothpaste and candy are no longer allowed in shoeboxes due to customs regulations. A $9 donation per shoebox is needed to cover shipping and ministry expenses.
- OCC Packing Party on Sunday, November 10 from 4:00pm to 7:00pm. Dinner will be provided. To preregister for this packing party, click here. This is a great event for families, life groups, friends, couples, and singles to connect while serving. Recommended age is 3 and up. The deadline to register is November 8 at Noon.
- Volunteer at our drop-off center. Once again, Grace is a regional drop-off center, November 18-25. To see the drop-off times, click HERE.To volunteer, contact Sonia Gomez at email@example.com.
