Operation Christmas Child Packing Party

  • YMCA 300 West Lanikaula Street Hilo, HI, 96720 United States (map)

Join us for our church wide packing party on Wednesday, November 16th from 6-8pm at the YMCA (300 W Lanikaula St.)! Our goal as a church is to pack 500 boxes together this night. The area we need the most help in is getting supplies that you shop for and bring to the packing party. Imagine, about 10-15 items will go into each shoebox to bless a child across the world. With 500 boxes that's about 7,500 individual items to pack. If you have never packed shoeboxes before for Operation Christmas Child, you can go online to their website to get ideas what to shop for and bring to the party.

We are praying for about 80-100 volunteers to come out this night and help us pack as many shoeboxes as possible. Please bring your family, friends and supplies to our party. It will be one big celebration and a great opportunity to volunteer to an awesome organization, Samaritans Purse. If you can not give with supplies or your time at our packing party, you can also click on ARISE giving page to donate money to our packing party. We will use donations to help cover the $7 shipping cost per box that people can not give.
