SEE YOU IN 2019.

Lakeview Chapel has been the greater Owego’s drop-off location for Operation Christmas Child for the past 19 years.  Over these 19 years we have collected 25,703 shoe boxes.  Attendees of Lakeview Chapel have packed 1,884 of these.  In 2016 alone, Operation Christmas Child collected 12 million shoeboxes to distribute around the world. We are blessed to be the hands and feet of Jesus to the children who have received these boxes.  If you are interested in assisting with National Collection Week by volunteering to help receive boxes, please contact the church office at (607) 687-3261.

Below you will find information on National Collection Week as well as how to pack a shoebox and how you can track your shoebox to its destination.  Or, click these links for more information about Operation Christmas Child and Samaritan’s Purse.
