Every year Cornerstone Church participates in Operation Christmas Child. In 2019 rather than collecting boxes of gifts for a few weeks, we selected a collection of specific items each month. In November we held a "packing party" where we put all of the gifts into individual boxes and prepared them for Samaritan's Purse, the organization responsible for the final distribution. As a church, we were blessed to be able to prepare OVER 200 boxes. Because of the overwhelming success, we're going to do it again in 2020! Below is a list of what is being collected each month.
We would like items for both girls and boys and particularly those who are 2-4yrs and 10-14yrs old.
February: Dolls & Stuffed animals
January: socks & underwear (2-4T, XS, S, M, L)
184 pairs of socks and 73 pairs of underwear were donated in January!
February: dolls & stuffed animals (approx 6")
March: play-dough & small cars
April: sewing kits & tool kits (homemade or purchased, may include 1-2 yards of fabric)
May: small balls (less than 6 inches) & plastic cups/water bottles
June: washcloths & soap (in original packaging)
July: toothbrushes & bandanas
August: spiral notebooks, pencils, solar calculators
September: crayons & coloring books
October: plastic shoeboxes & $9 donation (for shipping)
