Shady Grove Baptist Church seeks donations for Operation Christmas Child 

The members of Shady Grove Baptist Church are working on the Operation Christmas Child shoebox project. The new options for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes are as follows:  

  1. You may pick up empty boxes and labels at the church and fill with recommended gifts, along with a letter and picture if desired. Then just bring the filled and labeled boxes back to the church. Volunteers will deliver all of the boxes to the local dropoff location during collection week in November. There are a variety of donated items available at the church that may be used to help complete your boxes, if needed. If anyone would like to make a monetary donation, the church has a volunteer Christmas shoebox shopper who will purchase the items for you and assemble your box.  
  2. The easy, fun and sociallydistanced option is to make a $25 donation and use the Build A Box tool online. Just follow this link and virtually choose items to fill your box or boxes   

All donations will be greatly appreciated.
