The Jacksonville/Onslow Collection Center is located at the
E. J. Hines Baptist Center (2734 Commerce Road).

Thank you to all the volunteers and those who brought shoeboxes.
The 2016 shoebox goal was met with a total of 10,112 collected!

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM SAMARITAN'S PURSE:

  • $7.00 per box is requested to help with shipping expenses and evangelistic outreach.
  • Please put the donation in the envelope attached to the brochure.  Fill out, tear off, and seal.
  • Checks are recommended and should be made payable to Samaritan's Purse.
  • If you bring several boxes - you may make out one check for all of them.
  • Do not give checks to the workers.  THE CHECKS GO INTO A SHOEBOX.
  • Online payments will allow the shoeboxes to be tracked so the donor can be notified of where the box(es) were sent. 
  • Do not include candy, gum, or toothpaste.
  • Please use a standard size shoebox instead of the larger boot size.  Some prefer to use plastic boxes, of the same size, which can later be reused by the child.  If you wrap a box, please wrap the lid separately so the boxes can be opened in Charlotte.
  • The OCC "deco boxes" can be ordered online.  The cost is $27.00 for a case of 100 boxes.
              
    Please contact us about volunteering (men, women, youth, and older children).  This ministry is open to all denominations, school groups, organizations, individuals, etc. - anyone who has compassion for CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD.  ABOVE ALL, PRAY FOR THE COMPLETE PROJECT - Beginning Now!
     
    Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes present a wonderful opportunity to share the life changing message of God's love with hurting children, their families, and friends.  Included in each shoebox is a Gospel Storybook for the child in his/her own language, followed by a discipleship program for those who wish to learn more. Through the power of a simple gift, hearts are touched, lives are changed, and even whole communities are transformed.  OCC would not be possible without the help of everyone who prays, packs shoeboxes, volunteers, and gives financially.  The Coordinator, of the Jacksonville Collection Center, is Becky Hoffman.
