OCC is a school-wide project designed to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to children around the world who are suffering from war, poverty, disease, and natural disaster. MCS students will have the opportunity to pack and send shoeboxes. Last year our school packed 585 boxes – this year our goal is to pack and send 650 boxes! Here’s how you can play a part!

Additional ways you can help:
• $7 per box is needed for shipping costs. Each classroom will have a collection box for those who would like to donate. Please send any amount with checks made payable to ‘Operation Christmas Child’.
• Parent Helpers are needed to assist at our ‘Sorting Party’ on the morning of Thursday, November 3. Items received will be sorted and organized for the November 4 ‘Packing Party’. If you would like to be a Parent Helper, please email Krista Falk.
