All filled shoeboxes or loose filler items must be brought to church by Sunday, November 21st at the latest. Use your own shoebox, or a plastic shoebox, or pick up an official Operation Christmas Child box from the display in the Fellowship Hall. You also still have the opportunity to build a box online at https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/buildonline/ for $25 each.
But now that it is shoebox time, we need your help! As has been true for the past 15 or so years, First Christian Church is the central drop-off point for shoeboxes in Lawrence and the surrounding area. From Nov 15th-21st, individuals, churches, and groups will be dropping off their shoeboxes for us to send on to their next destination. We need your help to do this well. All ages and abilities are welcome. Please note that unless it is raining, we plan to be outside, so dress for the weather. You can sign up to come help at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090d4caba82ea7ff2-operation.
The largest need for helpers is on Sunday, November 21st from 1-3pm both for receiving shoeboxes and for loading up the truck to take them on to Kansas City.
