Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is a wonderful outreach opportunity All Saints Parish families can participate in with their children. OCC delivers shoeboxes filled with school supplies, hygiene items and fun toys to children worldwide! We are asking all members of the parish to participate, by dropping off a shoebox at the home of All Saints parishioner and neighbor, Becky Keating between November 9-20. Please place your box on the covered front porch at 8832 Sandymar Drive and we'll take care of the rest. Click here to watch a video as a family detailing how this project reaches children across the globe, and further explore how to pack a shoebox when you're ready. If you would prefer not to shop for items in store, or if you simply don't have the time, a box can be built online.
OCC is a great project for these times we’re living in and due to our Thanksgiving Baskets and Giving Tree programs needing to be so much less hands on and community-building this year (we are only able to do financial donations to these wonderful, long-standing All Saints initiatives). Operation Christmas Child is a good way to help those in need and to be hands-on safely. Families can track their shoeboxes when/if they register online and donate the $9 shipping cost and, then you can actually see what country your gifts arrive in. Pretty cool😊.
Tip on the shoeboxes – you can order one from OCC, decorate an actual shoe box that you have access to, or even use a plastic shoebox. You can also decorate a plastic shoebox if you go that route, and the benefit there I’ve learned through OCC is that the plastic shoebox is part of the gift and is very appreciated and put to good use long after Christmas.
WINTER COAT, JACKET, SCARF, GLOVES, HAT COLLECTION
Our 10th Annual Winter Coat Drive has begun. We so much appreciate your generosity! We will keep collecting your gifts of warmth thru Monday November 2.
The All Saints YOUTH ROOM STEPS (West side of the North Wing of our Church) is the place to bring your gently worn (or graciously new) cold weather gear … coats, jackets, hats, gloves, scarves. You’ll be keeping warm someone whom you may never meet but may long remember. We’ll deliver all donations in early November to the West End Pantry at Saint Joseph’s Parish, and to Holy Family School in Price Hill. Thank for your generosity to those who may be very cold without your very warm heart.
