Operation Christmas Child, a Samaritan’s Purse charitable program which sends thousands of shoe boxes filled with small gifts to children in parts of the world making sure more than a million children know they are loved and not forgotten at Christmas.  To take part either: 1. Fill a box; 2. Purchase a few items or 3. Give a $ donation to help with shipping costs (make checks payable to MCC Future). If you are taking a box, Please add your name to the Sign-Up sheet. Inside each box is a sheet of the suggested items and a boy/girl tag. Make sure to check off on the label whether you are buying for a boy or a girl and what age group.  Put the label in the top of your box when returning it. For those just buying items, take a sheet from the table. We must have all boxes and items back by Sunday, October 19th so the boxes can be wrapped.  From the Future’s Group, thank you for your participation in Operation Christmas Child.
