It's time to think about preparing to pack Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes. Many children from all around the world benefit from the boxes we fill right here in Perry County. When you donate to this ministry, you are not only giving gifts to children who have very little or nothing materially, but each box contains the gospel story of Jesus written in their language and a 12-lesson disciple class is offered to the children.
Cornerstone Christian Church will be the drop off station for Perry County. Each church, organization, or individual in our county participating in this ministry can bring their boxes to our church, where we will pack them into cartons and in turn deliver them to the proper receiving station in Harrisburg.
Suggested items to put in the boxes for children ages 2 to 14 are:
small toys; toothbrushes; combs; note pads; socks; barrettes; pony tail ties; lead and color pencils; soap; washcloths; hand towels; plastic cups; issues; games; hats; and craft items.
NO LIQUIDS, CANDY OR TOOTHPASTE may be packed.
You may also donate money toward items that we will purchase from a warehouse in Chambersburg at a reduced price. Each box costs $9 to ship, so your financial help will be much appreciated. If you have any questions, please contact June Smith.
