The Crusaders have been filling shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child since 1998. In those 19 years, we have filled 1369 shoeboxes that were delivered to children world wide - from Easter Island to the Ukraine!
Wouldn't it be great to hit 1400 shoeboxes! You can help that goal become a reality by picking up a shoebox and filling it with items are fun for the kids and essentials that will help them in the next year. Note: The shipping charge per box has increased to $10 this year.
Click here to discover what you can add to your shoebox or to find our more about OCC. We welcome you to take a few minutes to watch the official OCC full length video (click the link below). It is 6 minutes long and in it you will experience the unbridled joy of children around the world as they receive items that are simple but special - all because of people like YOU!
The deadline for FGM (Don't forget, we welcome community boxes!) is Friday, November 17, 2017 at noon. We are just 31 boxes away from 1400 - help us make this a reality! You can fill a cold weather box (going to Ukraine) or a warm weather box (Canadian boxes go to countries in Central America). It's all about giving to those that don't have, so join our Crusader Christmas Project and make a child smile this holiday season!
Special thanks to the Mrs. Amy Noel and the Elk Point Baptist Church for being our town collection center and for all their help and encouragement with filling shoeboxes!
