The Operation Christmas Child Central Drop-Off location for the 4 Corners region is located in the First United Methodist Church parking lot garage. Shoebox gifts are received from local churches and groups in Durango and surrounding towns including Bayfield, Pagosa, Cortez, Aztec, and Farmington. Our goal this season is to collect 7,500 shoebox gifts. Each gift is a Gospel Opportunity for the children recipients around the world. Those gifts will be packed into larger cartons, loaded onto a delivery truck, and driven to Denver for processing. Monday November 25 is the final collection day. Cartons of shoeboxes from our neighboring towns will be brought to FUMC for counting and loading. Volunteers are needed to help with this process. This may require heavy lifting. Volunteer hours are 9:30 am – 1:00 pm and 12:30 pm – 4:00 pm. Pizza will be provided between 12:00 and 1:00. Please contact Erin Hamlin for more details or to volunteer.
