About three weeks before the OCC Packing Party, we need to inventory all of the donated items to get an idea of what items we still need for the Packing Party.
After the inventory has been taken of all the items, we need help bundling and/or separating items. For example, rubber banding pencils and pens or making beads kits.
The OCC Packing Party is on a Saturday morning. Beginning the Thursday before, we unpack all of the items we’ve collected for the party and begin sorting them on tables. This takes all day Thursday and Friday to set up the party. You don’t have to commit to the whole time, but at least two hours of serving is most helpful. Lots of hands are needed to accomplish this preparation. However, due to the work environment of this particular task, we are unable to allow children to be present.
Come help us pack shoeboxes with all the items we’ve collected for Operation Christmas Child. All ages are invited to participate. Stick around after the party to help us clean up and store the boxes.
During National Collection Week, we will load a truck with all the boxes from Calvary Ministries and deliver them to the drop-off site.
