Operation Christmas Child Packing Party
November 8, 2014 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Everyone is welcome to come and pack Christmas gift boxes for children around the world. GateWay Bible Church, along with YES! Ministries and Jerryne King have been collecting supplies to fill and ship 300 Operation Christmas Child Gift Boxes. Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse, which seeks to share the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ, by reaching tangible needs of people around the globe. Operation Christmas Child provides gifts to children who would otherwise not receive one!
If you or your friends and family would like to be part of blessing children this Christmas, we would love to have you! You may like to stop by and pack a single box or stay for the duration to pack a couple! All supplies (including the box itself) are provided. Cookies and beverage will be provided along with a chance to write a letter to the child who will receive your box and to snap a photo with the Life-Sized Operation Christmas Child Box!
Community members are welcome to bring new toys, non-liquid hygiene items, clothing, and school supplies or to donate money towards shipping the boxes (only $7/box to ship worldwide!) if you would like. All items should be new and will be given to children aged 2-4 years, 5-9 years and 10-14 years old. You may simply bring the items along with you on Saturday-thank you!
Everyone is welcome and we look forward to meeting you! Contact [email protected] with any questions!
