WHAT are our fall giving initiatives?
Live Oak seeks to be generous and “others” focused year round. Every Fall we amp up this effort by challenging you to participate in our FALL GIVING INITIATIVES.
These are very tangible ways to love and reach out to those in need.
There are 3 ways to get involved…
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
PACK A GIFT-FILLED SHOEBOX FOR A CHILD LIVING IN A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY. EVERY CHILD WHO RECEIVES A SHOEBOX GIFT IS EXPOSED TO THE GOSPEL STORY THROUGH A PROGRAM CALLED “THE GREATEST JOURNEY.”
YOU MAY USE THE BOXES LIVE OAK PROVIDES (AVAILABLE ON OCTOBER 31)
OR PROVIDE YOUR OWN SHOEBOX OR SHOEBOX-SIZED TUPPERWARE.
IF YOU PROVIDE YOUR OWN BOX, YOU CAN FIND SHOEBOX LABELS
AT LIVE OAK, OR HERE.
PACKING INSTRUCTIONS CAN BE FOUND HERE
You can also build a box online this year! With just a few clicks, you can pack an Operation Christmas Child shoebox gift online to help share God’s love with a boy or girl in need around the world. Simply select toys and other fun items you’d like to include from our collection, and personalize your gift with your own letter and photo. Samaritans Purse will pack the gift for you and send it on its way for a suggested donation of just $25. Learn more HERE
THERE IS NO LIMIT TO HOW MANY BOXES LIVE OAK CAN CONTRIBUTE!
BOXES ARE DUE ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 21
