Every year, Samaritan’s Purse collection boxes of gifts for their Operation Christmas Child Program. An amazing way to share gifts with children all around the world that may have never received a gift of any kind before. College Church has had the amazing privilege of being the regional shoebox collection center for the last 16 years! We serve all 4 counties in
Western MA and send out over 10,000 boxes each year because of generous donations from the community!

This year collections will be from Nov 14-21. Boxes will be available for pick up at the College Church office or at the drop in the church Sanctuary from the 14th-18 from 4-7pm.

College Church will be hosting a packing party on November 12, from 8am-1pm for those who have would like to work together to fill boxes. There is even an online box filling option at Samaritan’s Purse’s Website.

All churches, organizations and families are encouraged to participate.

Let’s see how many boxes we can fill this year!
