For the 12th year in a row, Westwood Youth MSM is excited to serve children around the world through a program called Operation Christmas Child.
On Wednesday, November 16th we’ll have a packing party at youth group, packing shoe boxes filled with toys and toiletries to bless kids in different countries this Christmas. Students will be paired up with another student from their small group who will work with them to fill a box. Working together, the pair will need to supply: a variety of small toys, school supplies, hygiene items, and a monetary donation of $9 (per box) to help cover the cost of shipping. (You will NOT need to bring your own shoebox or wrapping paper this year, as we will provide OCC boxes for everyone to use.) For ideas on what kinds of things to bring, please visit: What goes in a shoebox gift?
