This year, we are pleased to again serve as a relay center for Operation Christmas Child, collecting shoebox gifts to be sent to poverty areas around the world.
Children from the ages of 2-14 will receive a shoebox gift filled with toys, school supplies, hygiene items or clothes. These children would likely receive no gift at all without our gifts of compassion.
Franklin Graham's ministry Samaritan's Purse coordinates this wonderful effort. A $7 donation is suggested to help with mailing expenses if you are able. Please make checks payable to Samaritan's Purse.
More information is available at the West Goodland United Methodist Church office. Call 810-724-1747 or 810-724-8139 for further details or to receive a packing guide to help you put together a box. Nothing resembling a war-like item, nothing breakable or spillable or damaged by temperatures can be sent.
Donations may be dropped off at West Goodland United Methodist Church the week of November 15-21. Hours are 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday-Saturday and from noon-2 p.m. on Sunday.
