Operation Christmas Child
Parkland is a local drop off. All year long, here at Parkland Baptist Church, we collect items to be placed in Operation Christimas Child shoe boxes. Then, in November we finish the collection process for Operation Christmas Child by having a packing party to finish packing any shoe boxes we have left with items that have been donated. This party lands in the middle of national collection week. Also at the same time we will be collecting boxes from all over our area.We will be receiving shoe boxes from 1:00pm until 5:00pm on those dates, Monday through Sunday, and then on Monday from 8:00am until noon. Then we load the truck and take all those boxes to Amarillo, who in turn delivers them to the Dallas collection facility. If you still have items to donate you can bring them to Parkland any day of the week, all year long, or with you to the packing party in November.
Collection week this year is November 13-20, 2023.
We will be receiving shoe boxes from 1:00pm until 5:00pm on those dates, Monday through Sunday. And then on Monday, from 8:00am until noon.
