Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child

IT'S THAT TIME OF THE YEAR! We're so excited to participate in OCC again this year, with the goal of 300 shoebox gifts filled and sent to a child! Watch the video above to learn more about OCC, and keep reading to find out how to participate.

how do i get a box?

We have boxes at the church from October 17 to November 7! You can pick a box up at one of our Sunday services, or you can email us at info@ccfcanton.org if you want to come during the week to pick a box up.

What do I put in the box?

You can choose to fill your box(es) for a boy or a girl in three age categories: 2-4, or 5-9, or 10-14. Here's what we suggest.


Start with a quality “wow” item such as a stuffed animal, soccer ball with pump, or clothing outfit that will capture the child’s attention the instant he or she opens the box.


These items are a YES ✅ : Personal care items, school supplies, clothing and accessories, crafts and activities, toys, a personal note


These items are a NO 🚫: Candy, toothpaste, gum, used or damaged items, scary or war-related items such as toy guns, saws, knives, or military figures, chocolate or food, seeds, fruit rolls or other fruit snacks, drink mixes (powdered or liquid), liquids or lotions, medications or vitamins, breakable items such as snow globes or glass containers, aerosol cans


How do I send my box?

Our collection day is November 14!


We have prepaid labels available! When you bring your packed box in, just mark on the label what gender and age the shoebox is for. It will include the number to track your Shoebox. If you can, please donate $9 per box you are filling. Please remember that $9.00 was paid for the label. Be sure to use it.


If you want to pay for your own shipping, pick up an unpaid label and follow the directions. You will be notified where your box went.
