It’s that time of year again. Every year, Operation Christmas Child’s Shoebox Collection Week takes place the third week in November when nearly 5,000 drop-off locations are open across the nation. Starting July 23, 2017, New Genesis will be collecting items to place in the Christmas shoe boxes for children ages 2 through 14 years old. The kids of New Genesis Church will be decorating our receiving box, which will be placed in the rear of the church. We encourage everyone to participate in helping bring joy to children in need around the world, during the Christmas season, by blessing a child with a gift box at Christmas. The receiving box will remain in the church until November 5th; after which we will need volunteers to help in packing the boxes and getting them out to the mailing locations. A list of the items needed will be posted on the receiving box to assist you in purchasing just the right items needed for the gift boxes. Further information will be provided in the coming weeks.
