Operation Christmas Child Boxes collection dates are November 13-20 at noon. You can use the printed boxes that we have in the entry of our church or the clear plastic boxes to fill with gifts of your choice for a boy or girl. This year there has been a couple of changes. We cannot send toothpaste or any candy. Those items are not allowed this year due to stricter regulations. The shipping amount has also changed to $9.00 per box. Please remember to attach the boy/girl slip and circle the age group that you have selected to receive your box. Thank you for participating in this worthwhile project. Last year we filled 133 boxes for children in Togo. Lets try to fill even more this year and make a difference in a child’s life
