Operation Christmas Child Drop-off

Our Church has been invited to be an
Operation Christmas Child Drop-off location
for Southwest Tucson.

Operation Christmas Child Drop-offs are the first of
many steps in the journey of Shoebox gifts. That means
Drop-off locations are trained to effectively collect
shoeboxes and convey the love of Christ in their
local community. The primary function of an
OCC Drop-off location is to collect, count and transport
shoebox gifts. Every shoebox collected is accurately
counted, cartonized, and moved efficiently.

Drop-off Responsibilities:
➢ Have a designated Drop-off Team Leader
➢ Set appropriate hours of operation each day during National Collection Week. Each Location should be open to the public a minimum of 4 hours each day, clearly communicate the hours of operation to the general public and the Central Drop-off Team Leader.
➢ Create a collection area that is easily accessible and safe for the participating public to drop off shoebox gifts.
➢ Maintain an accurate count of all shoeboxes received at your drop-off location.
➢ Transport all received shoebox gifts to the designated Central Drop-off on or before the last day of National Collection Week which is:
Monday, Nov. 13– Monday, Nov. 20.
All on-site activities are understood to be the responsibility of the hosting church in support of Operation Christmas Child.
