Operation Christmas Child


Operation Christmas Child | Hope for a Better Day

One way Southport Presbyterian/ serves the world is through Operation Christmas Child by donating small gifts so that we can send hope all over the world in a simple shoebox! We will be collecting a different item each week beginning Oct. 8. You’ll be able to pick up a shopping list and shoeboxes starting Sunday.

October 8 | TOYS

Stuffed animals, dolls, jump ropes, yo-yo’s, cars, Barbie dolls

October 15 | HYGIENE

Toothbrushes, bars of soap, washcloths, combs, dental floss **NO TOOTHPASTE**

October 22 | SCHOOL SUPPLIES

Pencils, markers, crayons, colored pencils, small notebooks, coloring books

October 29 | ACCESSORIES

Socks, hats, sunglasses, hair accessories, jewelry, watches, flashlights

November 5 | $9 SHIPPING DONATION

Shipping costs are a challenge for Samaritan’s Purse, so we can help by donating.

November 11 | CHURCH WIDE PACKING PARTY

We’ll have a free dinner, along with collection bins and packing stations. We’d love to have everyone at Southport Pres pitch in to pack and pray.

OR PACK A SHOEBOX AT HOME

We have lots of empty shoeboxes you can take home to fill up and return to Southport Pres. The last day to drop off filled shoeboxes is Sunday, November 19.
