One of our most successful service projects form our previous years was an Operation Christmas Child (OCC) packing party. Many of you may have also participated in one of these events in your local troop or church. AHG had a very successful OCC campaign this year in honor of their 20th birthday. Our 10th Anniversary OCC Packing Party is going to be our best one yet. We are having representatives from OCC National Headquarters in Charlotte, NC come down participate and document our endeavors.
Our OCC Packing Party is going to be a celebration to close out AHG's 20th birthday and we are excited to share it with you.
Here is how you can help:
BRING IN ITEMS TO PACK ! ! !
A list of suggested and acceptable items are found here and below. We are including links to the OCC website if you like to know more information about the organization or the items suitable for donation. Link here -> Operation Christmas Child
We are asking each camper to bring enough items to fill at least 2 shoeboxes. DO NOT make or assemble boxes at home, please just bring items to camp. We will sort donated supplies and girls will fill boxes "shopping style".
Each girl will take a box and select items form thousands of choices and fill the box.
She will then write a short note to her recipient and her box will be marked complete.
She will then make another box. We will make boxes until we run out of supplies.
Our goal over the three weeks of camp is to make at least 500 boxes, but shooting for 750!!
If you have any questions, please contact me here at Camp Wannacombac.
