Can you believe it is already November? In little more than one week, we will have our Operation Christmas Child shoe box packing party. The packing party will be held on Sunday, November 10th at 3pm downstairs in the Van Wyk Fellowship Hall.
Since our initial inventory update (10/14/2019), we have received a bunch of coloring books, but still have NO crayons. We need a variety of items, including stuffed animals, dolls, books, matchbox type cars, coloring books (including adult coloring books) and crayons, and all school supplies (one subject notebooks, notebook paper, drawing paper, solar calculators, pencil sharpeners, journals), puzzle books, jigsaw puzzles, small toys and games, stickers, etc. We also need donations of hats, gloves, mittens, scarves, underwear, socks, plain or appropriate t-shirts.
Just to note - NO weapons or war toys, NO flags or representations of the United States, NOTHING of any political nature whatsoever, NO TOOTHPASTE OR FOOD OF ANY TYPE (including all candy) NOTHING breakable including mirrors!
Please remember that all items packed in boxes should be new. For a full checklist, please visit our Operation Christmas Child page.
We usually go for 100 boxes, so we need to double our toothbrushes, washcloths, and soap. Also, we need more Ziploc bags (sandwich size for soap and toothbrushes and snack size for hair clips).
