Operation Christmas Child at Hilldale UMC

Volunteer with this Ministry!

Operation Christmas Child is an organization near and dear to the heart of Hilldale. Every year, our congregation participates in this program in order to bring the joy of Christmas and the love of Christ to children around the world.

We are going to have an Operation Christmas Child Packing Party this summer. On Saturday, July 11th, we will have a Toddler Packing Party up on the Hill. Two rooms will be set up to pack toddler girl shoeboxes and two rooms for toddler boy shoeboxes. You will be able to pack FIVE shoeboxes during each time slot on this date. In order to maintain our social distancing and safety practices, only 10 people can pack per room, and masks MUST be worn while participating. With multiple time slots, 120 will be able to pack at this party!

If you would like to pack with a particular group, please coordinate that ahead of time.

Notes and family photos to go inside the boxes should be brought with you!

To prepare for the above packing party, we are having THREE preparation days. June 23 and 24th we will prepare boxes. July 10th, we will prepare the rooms for the packing party. Ideally, we need 8 people each day to prepare.
