Check out this video from a recent shoebox distribution in the Phillipines. It really hits home the message of OCC- Good news, Great joy. Even though these precious children can’t physically hear, they will “hear” the good news that there is a God who loves them through the Greatest Gift book they receive with their shoebox. There are so many children with so many different needs that receive our shoeboxes- let’s pack as many as we can! This brings me to this month’s challenge: save up for your shoebox postage. Has anyone seen the tubes of mini M&M’s at the checkout stand of your favorite store? After you enjoy a little snack, that tube is perfect to sit on your counter for you to collect your spare quarters each day. When you have it full, it will pay postage on approximately 2 boxes (remember postage is $7 for each box). This is a great way to get your whole family involved a few months before collection week. Also, don’t forget to mark your calendar for a special night, September 21, for OCC. We’ll need all hands on deck! More info to come on this in a couple of weeks.
