At the next MOPS meeting, Nov. 11, we will be putting together boxes for Operation Christmas Child. If you do not want to put a box together at home with your kids but want to help, just bring in some things that we can put in the boxes. Also, we need shoe boxes, so bring in those boxes :)
There is a $7.00 fee per box for shipping. You do not need to pay for a box to fill one, but if you feel you can and want to, you can make your checks payable to Samaritans Purse.
You can check out their website at www.samaritanspurse.org/occ for more information and to answer some questions you may have.
-decide which gender and age group you are making a box for. (in brochures handed out at the last MOS meeting or at www.samaritanspurse.org/occ)
-stuff the shoebox (or small rubbermaid like container) with age appropriate goodies and necessities
- put your $7.00 donation in the box (remember, you can still do a box without having the money....DO NOT LET THAT STOP YOU)
-wrap your box (wrap box and top seperately so the box can still be opened, but you do not need to wrap it at all) and tape your tag with gender/age group on top of the box
-pray with your children over the box and for the child who will receive it
-bring it to our Nov. 11 MOPS meeting
-smile and imagine how you have impacted a child's life forever
