Hope in a BOX

We are looking forward to another fantastic shoebox packing season in November, so please plan to join us this year in packing your boxes the traditional way, online or both!

How to pack


an  OCC shoebox

There are two ways to pack an OCC box. The easiest way is to join our online packing party. The link to a special page will be posted on this page during the collection period.

Additionally, if you love the experience of shopping and building physical shoeboxes, you can pick up empty shoeboxes at Grant in November and drop off at Grant during the collection period.

This year, Grant is again a Drop-Off Centre for OCC. So, whether you are a part of our Grant church community or not, you are more than welcome to drop off your boxes at Grant from November 12-24* or bring them to any of Samaritan's Purse Drop-Off Centres.*

* Don't forget to please include your $12 donation to cover shipping charges.

Also, mark your calendar and join us at Grant for our annual OCC pizza celebration lunch, and human chain shoebox move and packing party on Sunday, November 19, after the 11 a.m. service.
