I trust you are doing well. There is so much going on and the business of the season has been intense but I can honestly say that everything is so worth it! Our CONNECT volunteer leadership teams in your community are doing an incredible job. It humbles and overwhelms me that I have the privilege to serve with some incredible people in each of your communities.
I’m assuming you have received your shoeboxes and other resources? If you haven’t please let your local Operation Christmas leaders know. You can still order some boxes through our website, SamaritansPurse.ca/OCC and click “Order Now”. You can also call Operation Christmas Child at 1-800-303-1269. Please know that we are beginning to run out of shoeboxes so if you require more boxes please place your order in the next couple of days. 2015 – Yes – No Items
This year our National Goal is to reach 710,000 children who desperately need to know that they are loved and not forgotten. 2015 Receiving Countries
I would like to make sure that I do what I can to support our CONNECT volunteers and support you as we all partner with OCC this year.
