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.

SUGGESTED DONATIONS: hygiene items (soap, washcloths), school supplies (crayons, pens/pencils, notebooks), small toys (cars, jump ropes, dolls, playing cards).  PLEASE NOTE: OCC will NOT collect empty shoe boxes, toothpaste, candy or gum.
