Timberline Church finished packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child on November 21st, and the results are in. Wow, have we got some good news for you!
Last year we filled 1100 worldwide Gospel Opportunities (otherwise known as shoeboxes) through OCC, so we decided to set our sights high and shoot for 1200 gifts this year.
As a result of your efforts, Timberline gave with open hands and loving hearts as we more than fulfilled our hopes for the year. We sent 1,284 boxes from our Fort Collins campus and 269 boxes in Windsor.
Timberline, you donated over 1400 shoeboxes worldwide to children in need of God’s love!
But wait! That’s not all. Timberline’s reach went even further since we were also a district collection center for Operation Christmas Child.
Over 20,000 boxes from 8 relay centers throughout Northern Colorado went through the collection centers. Using 50 volunteers—including some employees from Otterbox—we filled 3 ¼ semi-trucks with boxes headed to Denver’s regional office.
What a joy to have the means to give. What a great heart you all have demonstrated at Timberline this year. Imagine the smiles and the hope you have sent throughout the world because of your work.
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” –Mark 16:15
