OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD (OCC)



Each year we partner with Samaritan's Purse to provide Christmas shoe boxes full of necessities, toys, love and the Good News of Jesus to thousands of kids.  This ministry is ongoing all through the year! You are encouraged to shop for shoebox items (school and hygiene items, toys, books, socks, etc.). Donations are now being accepted at Immanuel.


PLEASE NOTE: OCC will NOT collect empty shoe boxes, toothpaste, candy or gum this year. 


PREP PARTIES (see schedule below) will be held leading up to the Community Packing Party on Saturday, November 10, 9-4 PM, to accomplish tasks such as sorting items, wrapping boxes, etc.


For more information on how to get involved contact Susan Schmidt or Kerri Ward at occ@immanuelhome.org

SUGGESTED DONATIONS: hygiene items (soap, washcloths), school supplies (crayons, pens/pencils, notebooks), small toys (cars, jump ropes, dolls, playing cards).
