You’re probably used to seeing Operation Christmas Child (OCC) boxes available by now. Well, this year we’re trying something new! We would like to directly bless one of our supported missionaries and their Gospel efforts, so we hope you’ll join us for Mission: Christmas!
Our focus this year is Dr. and Mrs. Kakish, who minister to orphans in Palestine and Israel. Dr. Kakish himself was orphaned in Jordan as a young child, and obviously has a heart for children who find themselves in the same situation.
Every Christmas they have a big celebration. We want to help provide what they need, as prices are higher now due to the current conflict. Since shipping things is out of the question, we will be sponsoring virtual boxes. This means we donate the money, and Dr. Kakish purchases the supplies they need locally. This allows more funds to go directly to the mission, and also puts finances into their local economy. This is also a great way for you to get in some end-of-year giving!
Here’s how you can help: We’d like to sponsor ONE HUNDRED gift boxes for the children, and also TWENTY-FIVE food boxes for people in their surrounding areas who are struggling to feed their families. Click the button below to support the cause. If we can blow past this goal, that would be amazing!! Be sure to check out the poster in the Commons to keep up with our progress!
Gift Boxes- $25 each
Food Boxes- $100 each
