Operation Christmas Child

We are once again excited to be preparing for our Operation Christmas Child Packing Party on November 6th.  Each November thousands of churches prepare and collect shoeboxes filled with toys, school supplies, personal items, and other small gifts around the United States.  There have been over 120 million boxes delivered through the years.  We will be packing 1000 boxes doubling the number from last year at our packing party!

This year we will be collecting

1) Unused matchbox cars

2) Small stuffed animals

3) Flip flops for kids

4) Monetary donations to help cover the cost of shipping   Simply make your check payable to Cornerstone UMC and write “Operation Christmas Child” on the memo line.

Bring any of these items to the hallway across from the church office and look for the area marked Operation Christmas Child.   Thank you!  Rachel Perry and Missy Ankrom
