Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child is a year-round ministry at BRC. We strive to send as many shoeboxes each year as possible; remembering that each shoebox is one more child reached. We focus on specific items bi-monthly, but you are certainly not limited to these items. Any appropriate shoebox items are always accepted at any time! No Candy or Toothpaste is allowed in shoeboxes.
Please see Cindy or Jeff Toom with any questions, ideas or volunteer interest. Thank you in advance for any help you can give.
A collection box is located on the shelf across from the kitchen.
- March/April- toothbrushes, bars of soap, washcloths, combs, hair accessories
- May/June- children's socks and t-shirts(all sizes), ball caps, flashlights w/batteries, sunglasses
- July/August- School supplies (no scissors or bottled glue), crayons, pencils, spiral notebooks and folders
- September/October- small toys and games such as ball, dolls, stuffed animals, small cars, kazoos, harmonicas, jump ropes, yo-yos...
