Operation Christmas Child
Early Shopping Opportunity

As you are “out” shopping for school supplies, please consider purchasing additional school supplies for Operation Christmas Child.  We’re not sure what the OCC Packing party at Shady Grove will look like this year, but we want to continue sending gift filled shoeboxes to needy kids this fall and need your donations to make that happen.  Any new school supplies that will fit into a shoebox are greatly appreciated and we can especially use crayons, markers, pencils, pens, single subject spiral notebooks, and scissors.
For more information about Operation Christmas Child, view the Shady Grove webpage or the OCC webpage.
