River Oaks-Helping Children around the World!

Each year, River Oaks of Anoka participates in Operation Christmas Child (OCC), a project Samaritan’s Purse.  Operation Christmas Child strives to make everlasting memories on children around that world with small gifts that impact their lives in great way.  River Oaks of Anoka is thrilled to aide in their mission by collecting items to be placed in shoeboxes that are given to needy children around the world.
On October 13th at 10:30 a.m., River Oaks, along with guest speaker Peggy Smith, will be hosting an event called, “Operation Christmas Child Kick-Off.”  At the event, Ms. Smith will be explaining OCC’s mission and purpose, and will be there to share wonderful stories about how our donations touch the lives of children who receive them.
We will be officially begin collecting donations on October 1st, and will accept them through November 9th.  The items the organization would like donated are as follows: small toys, school supplies, hygiene products and/or notes of encouragement.
In 2014 River Oaks packed nearly 40 boxes!  We are looking forward to topping that record this year!  If you would like to help by donating an item or attend our Operation Christmas Child events, please see the address below.  Thank you for your support!  
Please call with any questions about donating and supporting this great cause. 763-421-4011
