Amazingly, it is time for Operation Christmas Child again! More than ever, our generosity is needed. In the next couple of weeks, we’ll know where our boxes are going this year.

Our Religious Education students have kindly put together 135 boxes, which we encourage you to take one (or more) and fill. Please make sure to return them to church by the weekend of November 9-10. We have enclosed an easy-to-follow brochure with instructions in each box.

This year we were not able to get as many of the premade boxes as we have in the past. You are welcome to use one of these boxes or use a plastic box. Several stores in our area have them for about $1 each. The plastic boxes themselves are a great part of the gift. In many of the countries where our gifts go, these boxes become storage to keep the heat and insects from harming family belongings. If you do use a plastic box, please label it as you would a premade box. You are encouraged to secure a rubber band around any box with your check for shipping. Thank you so very much for your generosity!
