It’s that time of year again to pack your shoebox(es) for Operation Christmas Child!
A project of Samaritan’s Purse, OCC’s mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Just like years past, The Cove will once again be a drop-off location for your shoeboxes during the National Collection Week, November 13-20, 2017.
We’re located at 1 Porter’s Cove Road, Asheville, NC (Just off of I-40, exit 55).
Learn how to pack a shoebox here, and come drop it off at The Cove during the following hours:
- 9:00am-5:00pm ET Monday, November 13 through
Friday, November 17
- 12:00pm-5:00pm ET on Saturday, November 18
- 1:00pm-6:00pm ET on Sunday November 19
