Operation Christmas Child

Our Royston First Operation Christmas Child Shoebox collection will be starting up soon.  We had a great collection last year, and are excited to start collecting shoeboxes this year. Our goal this year is 250!    

This year, because of Covid-19, we have several options for filling shoeboxes. The options are:

  1. Shop, as you have in the past, and fill your shoeboxes with toys, school supplies, hygiene items, clothing, etc. appropriate for the sex and age of the child you’ve selected.
  2. Order items on-line to fill your shoeboxes, so you don’t expose yourself, unnecessarily, to Covid-19.  Pick up shoeboxes from the church and fill them with the items you’ve had shipped to your home.
  3. Fill your shoeboxes virtually. As always, you choose the sex and age of each child to receive your box and virtually choose the items to include. The cost is $25.00 per box which includes the $9.00 shipping cost, and all the items you have chosen. Our online goal is 100 shoeboxes
