One of Immanuel’s ChristCare groups, led by Bob and Sally Denkert, invites the congregation to join them for their annual project, Operation Christmas Child, in which shoeboxes filled with needed items are sent to 105 countries. Immanuel members may help by purchasing and donating needed items (i.e. school supplies, toys, hygiene items, candy) and filling a shoebox with them, or dropping off items and empty shoeboxes at church. Donations are also needed toward shipping costs.
Members may also assist at the Shoebox Party, where donated items are put into shoeboxes and all boxes are labeled for the collection site. From there, the shoeboxes will be routed to a distribution center, and then on to one of the participating countries. Contact Bob or Sally Denkert for more information.
