Each year we partner with Samaritan Ministries for Operation Christmas Child. From children to seniors, people pack shoebox gifts each year to bless children in need around the world. Parents often use the project to teach their kids about giving. Year-round volunteers with OCC support these efforts across the country.
Along with donating boxes, this year, CrossRidge Church is a drop-off location providing an easier way for people to donate their shoeboxes. CrossRidge will then deliver the boxes to OCC.
How To Pack A Shoebox
You can use your own shoebox or you can pick up a shoebox in our foyer on Sunday mornings. Simply take the box, pack it and return it with a $9 donation. For detailed information on packing a box, tracking your package, paying $9 online and more visit:
