As announced during RNB, our church will again participate in OCC this year. Remaining collections dates include today 11/6 with the packing party taking place after service on 11/13. Here’s some additional information about the program below.
From children to seniors, people pack shoebox gifts each year to bless children in need around the world. Parents often use the project to teach their kids about giving. Year-round volunteers support these efforts across the country.
Churches and groups of all sizes collect boxes from their communities during third week of November every year.
Long before shoeboxes arrive in more than 100 countries, volunteer National Leadership Teams train pastors and community leaders who want to share the message of the Gospel and bless children. The leaders learn how to host child-friendly outreach events, and how to implement The Greatest Journey follow-up discipleship program.
