Lakeview Chapel has been the greater Owego’s drop-off location for Operation Christmas Child for the past 25 years.  Over these 25 years, Lakeview has ministered to 3,522 children by filling a shoebox for each one. As a drop-off location, we have collected nearly 35,000 shoe boxes. 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.

National Collection Week
