It’s Operation Christmas Child shoebox packing time again! Conway Christian has participated many years in OCC, which ministers to children all over the world. Our goal this year is to once again pack 300 boxes as a combined campus of pre-k through upper school. We are emphasizing categories of items over the next four weeks, and we ask that you participate by sending those weekly items to the school. Collection boxes will be placed at the entrances of both campuses. We are also asking for each student to bring $1 a week so that we can reach our goal of $2,000 to ship these boxes. The money will be collected at each campus office.
Oct 26--31 -- school supplies: pens, pencils, crayons, colored pencils, sharpeners, coloring books, small notebooks, erasers, solar calculators
Nov 1- Nov 4 -- hygiene items: toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, washcloths, bar soap (no liquid)
Nov 7-11 -- toys/accessories: socks, shirts, hats, hair bands/clips, watches, flashlights (with extra batteries), toy cars, jump ropes, small stuffed animals, balls, yo-yos,harmonicas, dolls (fully clothed) *nothing military, no play money, no plastic snakes*
Nov 14-16 -- candy: we are specifically asking for gum and hard candies, such as life savers, dum-dum suckers, smarties. *no tootsie rolls, chocolates, or candies that could melt.
The 7th and 8th graders will be organizing these supplies so that the students will have opportunities to pack the boxes November 17-18.
