OCC Wrap Up

Collection week is always fun.  Getting to talk to the various folks that come in the door is a great remedy to the cynicism we are so often drenched in.  None of them have to do this.  And there is no immediate pay off unless you count a sticker or a piece of chocolate from me a payoff.  But they do it out of charity.  And that charity creates opportunities.  For us this year was a good year not just in battling cynicism, but also in numbers various.  1,429 shoeboxes collected, 95 cartons, 65.5 volunteer hours, 114 boxes from our own congregation.  Soli Deo Gloria.
