OCC Packing Party Scheduled
Get your calendars marked for the Operation Christmas Child packing party. This is an annual event at New Life where members come together and pack shoeboxes full of assorted items for children. The boxes are sent to a regional center before being shipped overseas. OCC is a project of Samaritan's Purse.
Empty shoeboxes will be available at New Life in the next few weeks. In addition, a collection bin will be established for members who prefer to donate items rather than pack a shoebox.
