Operation Christmas Child:
Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Franklin Grahams Samaritans Purse that seeks to replicate the Christmas story. Each year, shoeboxes are filled with gifts which find their way to children all over the world.
- National Collection Week is November 18 - 25
- For 12 years Saint Stephen has been the regional collection center for OCC.
- In 1999 when OCC first started, Saint Stephen had a grand total of 252 boxes collected, this year our goal is 15,000.
- Individuals, businesses and organizations can help by buying and filling boxes and bringing them to Saint Stephen on 4600 S. Western. They can also volunteer during collection week packing shipping cartons at Saint Stephen.
- Boys get boy boxes and girls get girl boxes, you can use an actual shoe box or buy a shoe box sized plastic storage container.
