Operation Christmas Child


Operation Christmas Child is underway! Please pick up a shoebox (or several!) from the table in the breezeway outside the sanctuary or from the table in the dining hall, and fill it with small gifts for a child such as: small toys, stuffed animals, school supplies, toiletries, etc. Boxes should be brought to Conference Room 2 by Sunday, November 18. They will be delivered to the processing center at Trinity Baptist Church on Monday morning, November 19.

Be sure also to pick up a flyer with a list of suggested gifts (and prohibited items) and a label for you to attach indicating whether your box is for a boy or a girl, and what age child it is for. Please also include a check for $7 per box to help Samaritan's Purse ship your boxes to all corners of the world! (If you do more than one box, please write just one check.) This is the 20th year that Samaritan's Purse has been reaching children for Christ through Operation Christmas Child. This year, you can help Operation Christmas Child surpass 100 million shoebox gifts packed and distributed since 1993! We hope that Forest Hills can match the number we packed last year, which was 477.
