  • October 17th thru November 8th – Collect Items for Operation Christmas Child (OCC)Boxes. In efforts to promote community service opportunities at Busy Bee, we participate each year in collecting items and boxes (the plastic boxes serve as a storage bin later for the children) for Samaritan’s Purse, Operation Christmas Child. Please see this link for their official website Operation Christmas Child. It’s shoebox time again! What a blessing to be a part of this annual project to give shoeboxes of simple gifts to children in need across the world. Compared to those children, we have so much to be grateful for. Each child only receives one box in their life, as they try to offer an opportunity to everyone each year to reach the most children. To make things simple, consider bringing several of one or two items to go in the shoeboxes. Bring items to Busy Bee by Tuesday, November 8th. We will have a shoebox packing party on November 9th & 10th from 11:00 to 1:30 pm – come anytime. We will offer free lunch bunch for those participating over lunch hour. Please sign up so we can have appropriate staff for childcare. For suggestions or signing up for a specific item or to volunteer to pack boxes, please use this link:  Operation Christmas Child @ Bethany Busy Bee
