  • Here’s how to be involved with the ministry of Operation Christmas Child at Wright’s UMC:

    1.     Pack your own box – find an empty shoebox, use a plastic container or grab an Operation Christmas Child box from the “Shoebox Tree” in the narthex (they are bigger and sturdier this year!), plus a brochure with packing labels. Use the packing list to buy new gifts for a boy or girl, and then return the box to church by Nov. 3rd. Be sure to enclose a check made out to Samaritan’s Purse to cover the $9 shipping charge for each box you pack on your own. You can write one check to cover multiple boxes. Please write “OCC” in the memo line.

    2.     Donate gifts (or funds) to buy gifts or to cover postage to pack at the Packing Party. Look for the big wrapped box in the narthex, or the volunteer holding a shoebox as you leave the service.  Please make these cash or check donations to Wright’s Church.

    3.    Come to the Packing (and Pizza) Party on Sunday, November 3rd, from 5:30 to 7:00pm, to lend a hand in packing 135 shoeboxes!

    Thanks for your involvement in this ministry! We are dreaming big and hoping to pack 150 gift-filled shoeboxes between Wright’s and Edward’s Chapel, to touch the hearts of 150 needy children across the world!  Please contact Laura Roberts (814-758-1307) with any questions.

    How do I follow my box?

     

    After you complete a shipping donation online through Follow Your Box, your tracking label will be displayed on the payment confirmation page and delivered to you via email. Print the label as many times as you need to affix each shoebox you pack with a tracking label. Mark boy or girl and the age-group range on each label according to the shoebox’s contents and attach the label to the shoebox gift. The label is connected to your email address through a tracking number, so it’s important to include the label on each of the shoeboxes so that each one can be tracked. The barcode enables us to scan shoeboxes during processing and to record their shipping status and country destination in our Follow Your Box look-up tool. There, look up the information for your shoeboxes according to your tracking number or the email address you used to donate to Follow Your Box.
