** UPDATE: Because of your support, this year, we collected a total of 3,816 shoeboxes! THANK YOU!
Beulah Alliance Church is excited to serve as a local Collection Centre for Operation Christmas Child again this year!
With your help, a total of 4,280 shoeboxes was collected in 2015 and we’re hoping to surpass that number in 2016. Pick up a shoebox at the lobby starting Oct. 15th and drop it off at the church by Nov. 20.
NOTE: If you’re dropping off boxes from another church, a school or organization, we have set aside a separate drop-off date for you: Saturday, Nov. 19 at 10 a.m. This will help us stay organized and ensure that we have ample storage for the number of boxes that will be dropped off. We appreciate your assistance in keeping our operations running smoothly!
Need ideas on what to pack? Here’s a list of the Top 100 shoebox items. Remember that candy is NOT allowed in Canadian shoeboxes, but you can fill the extra space with more school supplies, hygiene items or toys!
