We partner with Room In the Inn Lake Charles to prepare food for the homeless in our city! If you would like to help prepare plate lunches, please contact Bro. Davey or Mrs. Donde, and they will let you know where help is needed. When it is our turn to help, we try to prepare around 100 plate lunches. The dates to help are always on a Thursday.
Operation Christmas Child goes on all year long! We will have a box in the foyer to donate items for Operation Christmas Child starting Sunday. We will ask for different items each month. As you do your shopping, just pick up a couple of the requested items, and put them in the box.
Guidelines are changing this year on items that can be included. Toothpaste and candy can no longer be included in boxes. Also, the processing fee is changing to $9 per box to include shipping, processing, and Gospel materials to be handed out with each box. If you would like to donate towards the processing fee per box, please do so at any time.
Do Not Include
Candy; toothpaste; used or damaged items; war-related items such as toy guns, knives, or military figures; chocolate or food; fruit rolls or other fruit snacks; drink mixes (powdered or liquid); liquids or lotions; medications or vitamins; breakable items such as snow globes or glass containers; aerosol cans.
Candy specifications: Starting in 2017, no type of candy can be included in shoebox gifts.
Toothpaste specifications: Starting in 2017, toothpaste cannot be included in shoebox gifts, but a child’s oral hygiene can still be improved by regular use of a toothbrush alone.
