Groves Christian College aims to make donations towards Operation Christmas Child (OCC) in Term Four every year, as an opportunity to share hope and generosity in the Christmas season.
This year the college is focusing on supporting OCC in a financial sense, donating a portion of the money raised at missions events throughout the year to contribute to the costs of this special program.
If families would like to participate in practical giving of shoeboxes during the September holiday period, we encourage you to visit the official site of Operation Christmas Child, https://www.operationchristmaschild.org.au/, to find a local drop-off venue.
Alternately, many local churches are participating in physical donations to the project and you may wish to join their programs. Thank you to all the families who have shared in the practical giving in previous years and supported the fundraising efforts this year for this special missional event.
