AHG Troop OH2808 is excited to participate in Operation Christmas Child! The Troop will be packing boxes in November – and we’d love your help in spreading the Gospel to children in over 100 countries. To help facilitate this service opportunity, there are four ways members of our parish can support the mission of OCC and our Troop:
• Pack a shoebox! We’ll have bags available after service on Sunday to take home, fill with materials (suggestion list is included!) to return for our girls to pack into boxes during collection week.
• Donate “Wow!” items or everyday essentials! Find a great deal on toothbrushes or bar soap? Buy multiples and donate those to be included with boxes that we’ll be assembling.
• No time to shop, but still want to help? We will happily accept donations toward shoebox postage; it costs $9 postage per box to ship these to children everywhere. Envelopes will be available after service!
• Pray with us! Collection week is Nov. 11-17th, and we’ve got a special prayer bookmark reminder to help you through the week!
All donations DUE Sunday, 11/11 at church. The Troop will pack materials on 11/13, and then will be taken to our local drop-off center by 11/15.
Additionally, you’re welcome to come to our Troop meeting on 11/13 (around 7:30 PM) to pray over the boxes once they’re packed, enjoy some light refreshments and meet our Troop members and families, please let me know as so I can make arrangements for visitors.
