Weekly Notices 9, September 2018
Mission Project: The Retiring Offering and the Bucket Mission last week raised $292.60 supporting the cost of freight for the Christmas Boxes this year.
Operation Christmas Boxes: Thank you once again to those who supported this last year. We will once again be supporting the project this year. Each box is to contain something to wear, something to play with, something for school, something to love, something special and something for personal hygiene for boys and girls in ages 2-14 years. The boxes from New Zealand generally go to an Asia or Pacific Island country. You are all invited to support this by providing items or make a donation towards the transport costs of $10 a box. A box will be in each foyer for you to put in the items or leave the donation. Some OCC shoe boxes will be obtained. For further information contact Judith Begg Ph 688 6004.
