Operation Chirstmas Child

Christ’s Church participates each year in Samaritan’s Purse’s Operation Christmas Child shoebox ministry. Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes have delighted children and opened doors for the Gospel in some of the most remote places on earth. Each child receives a brightly decorated shoebox, filled with gifts.

To make this happen, we need your help.  We need the following donated items that can fit in a shoebox (we are not collecting any empty shoeboxes this year). A container will be available in the foyer for your donations.  Items need to be turned in by Sunday, November 12th.  For more info, call Tim Brown at 503-805-5584.

Toys: Dolls, inflatable soccer balls with pump, plastic kazoos, harmonicas, yo-yos, small Etch-a-Sketches, Slinkies, games, etc.

School Supplies:  Pencil sharpeners, markers, stamps, pencils, pens, coloring books, crayons, writing pads, solar calculators, etc.

Hygiene items:  Toothbrushes, soap, combs, washcloths, dental floss, etc.

Other:  Sunglasses, flashlights with extra batteries, ball caps, socks, T-shirts, mittens, toy jewelry, hair clips, watches, small picture books, small cups, etc.
