Avon United Methodist Church
Thank you for volunteering to help purchase items for Operation Christmas Child 2018! Last year we were able to send almost 300 shoe boxes! The following list has basic information about the requested item, quantity each volunteer should buy, how many volunteers are needed for each item and the approximate cost of each item. You may sign up for one or more items on the list. The purchased items should be brought to the church and placed in the boxes located in the original coat room by October 31, 2018. There are sample shoe boxes being displayed at various locations in the church in order to get an idea of the types of items for each age group and the size of the box we are filling (which is small). All items displayed in the sample boxes were purchased at the Dollar Store for $1 (keeping in mind some items are packaged as multiples). Plan to attend the packing party on November 4 before or after the worship service you attend where you will have the opportunity to help pack the items we have purchased. There will also be a station for those who choose to write a short note to include in the packages.
