This is why we do what we do.
“After one distribution event in Lithuania, one young woman came up to us and told us that she had received a shoebox in the same place ten years ago. She hardly could hold her tears back because the event and the shoebox she received at that time made a great impact in her life. Her parents would not allow her to go to church, but she would read the booklet ‘The Greatest Gift of All’ and pray to Jesus. This year she came to the OCC event with her child and decided to join the local church.”
We will be collecting school supplies and personal items such as soap, washcloths, toothbrush & toothpaste during the month of September.
We will use these donations to create 75 extra shoeboxes.
Last year you stepped up when you were challenged and we did 50 plus. I know we can meet and surpass this goal. There are large Samaritan’s Purse cartons in the sanctuary and in Fellowship Hall for your donations.
So let’s start shopping and help change a child’s life.
