The COVID-19 global pandemic has disrupted everyday life for millions of people around the world. Yet, Samaritan’s Purse continues to share the eternal hope of the Gospel and to serve in Jesus’ Name.
We want boys and girls around the world to know that God loves them and has not forgotten them during this time of fear and uncertainty. Children need great joy now more than ever. Most of all, they need the hope found only in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Will you help share that glorious hope with boys and girls around the world? Here are a few options for how you can participate this year:
4 Ways You Can Help Wake Chapel Reach More Kids with the Gospel:
1) Build a box online
Let Samaritan’s Purse do the shopping for you! In just a few clicks, you can select toys and other fun items to include as well as a letter and photo to delight the heart of a child. We have a churchwide goal to build 50 boxes online this year. To get started, go to Wake Chapel Goal Page
2) Fill a box
Pick up an empty shoebox and label from the church office. Fill it with small toys, toiletries, school supplies, and a note to the child. Drop off your filled box (with $9 for shipping) to the Family Life Center on Sunday, November 8 between 3:30 - 5:00 pm. For a list of appropriate items to pack, go to What Goes in a Shoebox
3) Donate filler items
Like shopping in bulk? Did you find a great deal on school supplies, bars of soap, or cute stuffed animals? Or maybe you’re crafty and want to carve, knit, or sew shoebox gifts. You can shop for OCC anytime throughout the year and drop off items at the church to be stored. At our annual packing party, the youth will use filler items to pack shoebox gifts. If you have gifts to include in this year’s boxes, please bring them to the Family Life Center on Sunday, November 8 between 3:30 - 5:00 pm.
4) Sponsor a box
If you can’t get out to shop, consider sponsoring a box by paying the shipping costs. A shoebox gift can travel the world and change a life - for just $9!
After the shoebox gifts are shipped overseas, local believers share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with children as they distribute them. As a result, families are reached, new churches are started, and communities are transformed. And it all starts with you. So get packing!
