Operation Christmas Child

Help pack gift filled shoe boxes for kids in need all over the world. It’s easy and fun for the whole family to get involved…

1) Pick up a pre-printed O.C.C. box or any shoebox will work.

2) Decide whether you will pack a box for a girl or a boy, and the age category: 2–4, 5–9, or 10–14.

3) Select a medium to large “wow” item such as a soccer ball with pump or stuffed animal, then fill with other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies. (See suggestions)

4) Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.

5) Donate $9 online and receive a tracking label to follow your box and discover the destination of your shoebox gift. (Donate Here or bring in a $9 check made out to St. Matthew Lutheran)

6) Drop off your box by Sunday Nov 18th in the church lobby.
