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 12. 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 $9 for each box you prepare. Shoebox packing information is also available here and in the lobby on Sunday mornings. (New this year…No toothpaste or candy, as these items are no longer allowed in shoeboxes due to customs regulations.)
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.
