OPERATION CHRITMAS CHILD

TIPS ON PACKING YOUR SHOE BOXES

1. Use new items. 2. Each box stands alone, so don’t divide items between two boxes. 3. Include some “fun” in every box. 4. Remove all wrappings from your items. 5. A toothbrush may be put in a zip lock bag. No candy or tooth paste because there is a used by date on them. 6. Include your check for $9.00 for each box you pack. You may also go on line and pay by credit card where you will get a tracking number strip to print out and attach to the shoebox. You can track the number until it reaches the country of its destination. If you do multiple boxes just write one check and put in one of the boxes. Place the boy or girl strip at either end of the top of the box. Later these boxes will be taped around the middle for shipment so don’t put the label in the middle. 

The Christmas Shoe boxes should be delivered to the church in the hall across from the office beginning November 5. They will be picked up on Monday, November 12, 2018 and taken to Calvary Baptist Church. Please remember to include your $9.00 check for each box you pack or go on line to pay by credit card, acquiring a bar code that may be printed and attached to the outside of each shoe box. Place large rubber bands around each box. Last year Operation Christmas Child Christmas shoe boxes were distributed to over 153 countries!
