Operation Christmas Child Packing Party: November 12th
The Packing Party is a great time for the whole family. Having collected appropriate gifts and goods, we gather after our evening service to pack shoeboxes for kids all around the world. The kids have a great time thinking through what they want their recipient to receive—it’s a wonderful and surprisingly personal way of teaching kids about the joy of giving. After it’s all done we watch a short classic holiday movie together, with ice cream and hot chocolate.
Want to participate? We are currently gathering donations and shoeboxes. You can bring both to church; leave them in the back behind the pews and let Tommy know!
What to donate? Here are a few of their suggestions (and you can also check out the website):
· School Supplies: pens, pencils and sharpeners, crayons, markers, notebooks, paper, solar calculators, coloring and picture books, etc.
· Non-liquid Hygiene Items: toothbrushes, bar soap, combs, washcloths, etc.
· Accessories: T-shirts, socks, hats, sunglasses, hair clips, jewelry, watches, flashlights (with extra batteries), etc.
· Crafts: Make your own items such as hair bows, finger puppets, and friendship bracelets.
