Operation Christmas Child 2020

Operation Christmas Child
National Collection Week, Nov. 16-23

Shoebox season is coming up soon! Central partners with Samaritan’s Purse each year to provide gifts and the gospel to children around the world. You can be a part of this annual event in one of the following ways:

OCC11. Fill a Shoebox

Central will have shoeboxes for pickup on Nov. 8 and 15 at the Charlotte and Lake Park campuses. At right is a list of items that can be included and those that cannot. Return your filled box to the Kids Building at the Charlotte campus between Nov. 15-23.

This year, you can also “build” a shoebox on Samaritan’s Purse website. (Click here for details.)
