Operation Christmas Child
Thank you for your willingness to support our Confirmation group service project! We are looking forward to providing Christmas gifts for underprivileged children all around the world that are not only fun but fulfill basic human needs. You can help us in 3 ways:
OPTION 1 (Donate gift items to fill the boxes): If you would like to donate gift items, the following list is some recommendations of the types of items we are seeking. We will be serving both boys and girls between the ages of 2 and 14. You can keep this in mind as you shop, or simply donate items that can be enjoyed by any gender or age. Please keep in mind that all items must be able to fit into a standard shoebox. Items can be deposited in the marked bins at the Parish Office and in the church vestibule and are due by November 13th.
Personal Care Items: comb, hairbrush, toothbrush, washcloth, bar soap, bandaids, reusable plastic containers (cup, water bottle, plate, bowl); Clothing and Accessories: underwear, socks, hat, scarf, mittens, sunglasses, hair bows, flip flops; Crafts & Activities: pencils, colored pencils, crayons, markers, pens, coloring books, notebooks, picture books, stickers, playdough; Toys: balls, slinkies, dolls, decks of cards, jump ropes, cars, stuffed animals; NOT PERMITTED: used or damaged items; war-related items such as toy guns, knives, or military figures; liquids or lotions; medications or vitamins; breakable/glass items; aerosol cans. NO FOOD OR DRINK OF ANY KIND.

OPTION 2 (Donate monetary gifts so we can purchase gift items to fill the boxes): Monetary donations can be put in the collection, mailed to or dropped off at the Parish Office, or submitted online through our giving portal by November 13th. For cash and checks, please put in an envelope clearly marked “Confirmation Project”. Checks should be made out to Saint Ann Catholic Church. Online contributions can be made HERE.
OPTION 3 (Donate filled boxes online): A link to our custom Build-a-Box webpage is available HERE. For $25, you can choose to either build your own box (“Start Building”) or get a pre-built box (“Build It for Me”). All boxes purchased through this webpage will help us toward our goal.
