Operation Christmas Child

October 1, 2017- Kick-Off

October 29, 2017-  box Dedication 

Shiloh family, you have been faithful in sharing God’s love by filling boxes for children around the world for many years.  Every item lovingly added to an Operation Christmas Child shoe box has the potential to impact a child. We will provide you with a box or you may supply your own box.  If you provide a box, please make sure it is sturdy so families can reuse it. 

New for 2017:  tooth paste and candy are no longer accepted for safety reasons.

If you have questions, please contact Susan Leonard or Elaine Weinberg.
