Operation Christmas Child KickOff
Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is a project of the international relief organization, Samaritan’s Purse. The Ridge partners with OCC to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. OCC ships these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S. This past year we donated over 880 shoeboxes filled with toys, books, and hygiene items to children around the world.
We will have OCC boxes available starting Oct 25. Not attending on-site Sundays? Boxes will also be available outside the church doors for pick-up.
Shoeboxes due at The Ridge Sunday November 15.
