Since 1993, over 100 million children from 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of a simple shoebox of gifts. This year, Cornerstone Kids – Rock City and Pebble Path – are collecting shoeboxes until November 16. Each week, the kids will be sent home with information to help them pack their shoeboxes. A picture and encouraging note from your family in the box is always very special, too! And don’t forget to help cover shipping and other costs related to delivering your shoeboxes to children overseas by donating $7 for each box you prepare. Shoebox packing information is also available here and at the Welcome Desk in the lobby at Hamilton Road and the Information Kiosk at Lee-Scott on Sunday mornings. You can get great ideas of how to involve your whole family in the packing fun here, and read about the shoebox destinations and their stories here.
A small shoebox can have a big impact. What goes into the box is fun, but what comes out of it is eternal. Be a part of changing children’s lives all over the world in Jesus’ Name through the power of a simple gift with Operation Christmas Child.
