Operation Christmas Child

Boiling Springs Baptist Church believes in spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ. One way we do this is by Operation Christmas Child. You can click on the OCC Logo and go to their website to find out more. Please be praying now for our upcoming 2024 Operation Christmas Child Campaign. Below is a sample list of items and costs from our 2023 campaign. 

 

Some Ideas Include:

Comb, brush, washcloth, soap( put in baggie), water bottle, cup, plate, bowl, pencils, pencil sharpeners, flashlights with extra batteries, crayons, colored pencils, markers, small craft kits, coloring books, books, playdoh, blankets, hard plastic utensils (toddler spoon and fork), hair bows, bracelets, sunglasses, glow sticks, blanket, t-shirt, shorts, pants, socks, shoes, age appropriate toys, a personal note from you or your family with a picture

 

Items that cannot be used:

Candy; toothpaste; gum; used or damaged items; war-related items such as toy guns, knives, or military figures; chocolate or food of any kind; liquids (including bubbles) or lotions; medications or vitamins; breakable items such as snow globes or glass containers; aerosol cans, scary toys (Batman isn’t scary to us but someone who doesn’t know may think he is).

In addition it costs $10.00 dollars to ship a shoebox. We ask that you donate the $10.00 to the church so we can write one check for all of the shipping. 

Another option you have is if you want to make a shoebox online you can on Samaritan Purse's website. Click on this link and you can make your own shoebox: https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/buildonline/.

Or if you do not want to make your own box you can give money towards helping our children and youth make shoeboxes. For $25.00 we can make a shoebox and pay for the shipping.

We will have deadlines later this year for Operation Christmas Child:


Thank you for supporting Operation Christmas Child!
