Operation Christmas Child

October & November | All Campuses

We want boys and girls around the world to know that God loves them and has not forgotten them. Most of all, they need the joy and hope found only in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Will you partner with us to share that glorious hope with children across the world—many of whom have never heard the Name of Jesus? You can do so by packing an Operation Christmas Child shoebox. Pick up a shoebox at the patio table on your campus starting November 5 and drop off your shoebox on one of the dates below.

You can also pack a shoebox online! With just a few clicks, you can select toys and other fun items you’d like to include and personalize your gift with your own letter and photo. OCC will pack the gift for you and send it on its way for a suggested donation of just $25.

North Ridge Packing Party

Friday, November 17 | 8am-1pm
Saturday, November 18 | 9am-1pm

Join us as we pack 600 OCC shoebox gifts that will be delivered to children in more than 100 countries around the world. The empty boxes and items to go into them will be provided. You can also help by donating items such as toothbrushes and small toys (cars, etch-a-sketch, games, marbles). If you feel led to find out where the shoebox you pack is sent and to donate for the shipping costs, an option to follow your box will be provided at the party. We will be limiting the size of the group and pre-registration is required.
