Pack a Shoebox Gift

You can help a child in poverty and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world!  Pack a shoebox gift with school supplies, small toys, and non-liquid hygiene items. Your simple gifts change lives and give children in need a tangible expression of God's love.

Pick up a pre-printed shoebox at the lobby table near the BLAST Children's Ministry. There are also instructional brochures available with gift suggestions and more information about OCC.


Donate $9.00 for Shipping Costs - Why $9.00?

Every shoebox gift needs a $9.00 donation to cover shipping costs:

  • You can include the $9.00 donation by writing a check and placing it in the provided envelope from the brochure. Place this envelope inside your shoebox on top of the items in the box.
  • You can also donate $9 online to cover the shipping costs. If you donate online, you can Follow Your Box to find out the destination country.
