It is the time of year to be thinking about Operation Christmas Child Boxes again. First Baptist Church will serve as a drop off for the Big Bend Region again this year. Your boxes should be dropped off at our church between November 16-23. The drop off week we will have extended office hours. You can drop off your box between 8:00 and 5:00 p.m. All boxes shoudl be turned in no later than 2:00 p.m. on Sunday the 23rd. We will crate all the shoeboxes on Sunday afternoon the 23rd.
How to Pack a Shoebox
Decide whether your gift will be for a boy or a girl, and the age category: 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14. Download and print the appropriate boy/girl label. Mark the correct age category and tape the label to the top of your box.
Fill With Gifts
Fill the box with a variety of gifts that will bring delight to a child (see Gift Suggestions below).
Include $7 Donation Per Box
Help cover shipping and other costs related to delivering your shoeboxes to children overseas by donating $7 for each gift you prepare. You can give online to discover the destination of your box. Or, you can write a check to Samaritan’s Purse (note “OCC” on the memo line) and place it in an envelope on top of the items inside your shoebox. If you are preparing multiple gifts, please make one combined donation. Note: Follow Your Box is only available through online giving.
Ask God to use your gifts to show His love to the child who will receive your shoebox.
