Operation Christmas Child

The Chapel is proud to serve as the Cape Girardeau Drop Off Location for Operation Christmas Child again this year.  The drop-off location is the starting point for the journey each shoebox makes to children around the world.  Last year, OCC collected more than 12 million shoeboxes filled with toys, school supplies, and hygiene items to send to children in more than 100 countries.

Drop-off Center Volunteers welcome & greet shoebox donors, log contact information, pray over shoeboxes with donors, count, re-count, and pack shoeboxes into cartons for shipping, and spread the Gospel through the ministry of Operation Christmas Child!  We would love to have you serve alongside us to reach children with the love of Christ.  To serve during Collection Week, sign up online or call 573-334-5948.


The Relay Center will be open each day during National Collection Week.  If you have a large number of shoeboxes, please call 573-334-5948 to schedule an appointment.  Questions, please call 573-334-5948.
