The North Fork United Methodist Church is again participating in Operation Christmas Child. We are collecting items for young children to be shipped around the world. There is a large collection box in the church sanctuary where your donated items can be dropped off, and in mid-October, we will have a shoebox packing "party" following a Sunday worship service as we pray for the children who will receive our gifts.
To help, if you are interested in participating, I have attached a list of suitable items that you may assist your shopping.
Each box (we have 48 to fill!) must be accompanied by a donation of $9 to cover the costs of shipping. You may make the payment to the North Fork UMC and provide on the memo portion of your check the words "Operation Christmas Child" so we know hold the funds for this purpose.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!
Peace be with you,
