Operation Christmas Child

It's Shoebox time again!  There are a variety of ways to get involved and support this ministry.  Here's the info.

1.  Fill a shoebox - Pick up an empty shoebox at the ministry table on Sunday after the service, fill it with gifts and bring it back to church on or before November 12.  Shoeboxes will be shipped to children in need around the world.  For more information about how to pack a box, click here.

2.  Help out during Collection Week - Davisville is a drop-off location for National Collection Week.  People from all over the community will be dropping their boxes off here at various times throughout the week of November 13 - 20.  We are looking for volunteers to be here to help collect and sort boxes and to donate snacks for those coming.  For more information about the specific times, click here.

3.  Volunteer at the Baltimore Processing Center - Millions of shoeboxes are collected during National Collection Week. Before these special gifts can bring hope and joy to children around the world, each one has to be carefully inspected and made ready for overseas shipment by volunteers. You can help prepare them for delivery by helping at the Baltimore Processing Center. We have some spots reserved on following dates. If you are interested, contact Beth and Tom Zawisza at or 215-939-7378  to reserve your spot. Transportation will not be provided. Visit The Hub for specific dates and times.
