OCC needs your help!  We are in REAL need of the following items:
Toys, toys, toys that fit into a shoebox (all ages and genders)
Combs and hair items for girls
Adult toothbrushes
Flashlights and batteries
School supplies
(Please, no more soap and washcloths.)
OCC has raised the shipping fee to $9. 
While this is a minimal increase per box (the 
first in 10 years), it really adds to the total when 300+ boxes are to be shipped. Anymonetary donations will be greatly appreciated. 
Thank you so much.  Karen Shipman
 
 
We proudly support Operation Christmas Child here at Harmony. This year we are filling boxes a little bit differently. We are collecting specific items each month and then we’ll pack the boxes before its time to send them off. For each box we send, it is recommended that we send $9.00 to help with the shipping and processing. If you feel led to give financially please mark your check or envelope “OCC” or “Operation Christmas Child.” Here is the list of monthly items to bring.
