What I love about Operation Christmas Child is that you can start gathering stuff to put in the shoes boxes all year around. I love do that and I will load up on all sort of fun stuff, from hats and socks, to stuffed animals and dolls.
Operation Christmas Child is through Samaritans Purse and the have a idea list of this you can get each month if that is something you want to do. I know that a lot of churches do this. Not everyone like to but I did. I don’t usually follow their list for each month but I thought that I would share it with you. So here is their January list:
I hope that this might encourage you to start filling OCC boxes! and find the Joy for giving to child around the world!!
P.S. The collection day for the boxes is always in November.
