Children in 2021

In 2021 Round Hill will be preparing to pack shoeboxes through the year vice trying to reach our goal in September through mid-November when our church is also generously providing Thanksgiving baskets and Christmas Caring Tree gifts to those in need in King George County.  Be on the lookout for the Operation Christmas Child (OCC) table in the fellowship hall foyer on the first of February.  Drop off by Sunday, November 14, 2021, pick up tips on how to gather shoebox items to donate to RHBC for a late summer 2021 Build a Shoebox event and have items to pack your own shoebox(s) that you normally do each year. 

Operation Christmas Child

Why is your packed shoebox so important? 

Updates to OCC activities and events will be posted to this site and will be noted in our RHBC newsletter.  Our shoeboxes are to be turned in no later than NOV. 14 2021.  Take a moment and watch the short video below to remind yourself of how important your decision to get a box, build a box, pray over the box, and return the box is to a child who needs reassurance that God loves them!

The following links are just a few of the personal testimonies of those who received an OCC shoebox and the impact it had upon their life and their family’s life.  

  

Getting started is easy!  Pick up a shoebox, pack a box, pray over the box, bring your box to Round Hill Baptist Church before November 14, 2021.  Turn your box or boxes into the OCC project table.  Watch this very short video on what can and cannot be packed in the box.

How do you pack your box?  To download the packing list download click          

Not able to get to the store to gather the items to pack a box; then pack a box online and still help RHBC reach it goal!  Special note:  Boxes built online are available to Samaritan’s Purse to be specially packed, so they can pass through customs easier in hard-to-reach nations around the world.

Just go to this link and start building something very special for a young child.  Remember to note you are building a box in support of Round Hill Baptist Church of King George, VA.  Your box build online will have options to pick a Wow item, a toy/ gift, accessories, and essentials.  The essential items cover personal care items and school supplies.  They vary slightly depending on the age and gender for which you are packing.  These items include chalk (age 2-4), crayons, colored pencils, a coloring book or coloring pad, notebook, pencils, pencil sharpener, pens (age 5-9 and 10-14), a comb or brush, and a toothbrush.
