Operation Christmas Child 2019 Collection Through Nov 23
Naples Adventist Church in partnership with the Naples Adventist Christian School will be collecting shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. NACS has a goal of 200 boxes this year and we at Naples Adventist Church want to be a big part of that goal! Nearly all 24 prepared boxes were given out this past Saturday, but that doesn't mean you can't still help! It's as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4!
Pick up your shoebox size box at the dollar store, and fill it with toys and goodies for a child overseas. Below is a list of suggested goodies for your box for both a girl or boy and broken down by age range.

- Fill with Gifts: Select a medium to large "Wow" item such as a soccer ball with pump or stuffed animal, then fill with other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies. Click Here for additional suggests for gifts and toys!
- Pray: Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.
