What is the Box-Off Competition?
The Box-Off is a yearly competition with business and group categories to encourage participation in Operation Christmas Child. To participate, you must pack the most shoe box gifts of an entering business or group and send ($9) donation to Samaritan's Purse. The team in each category who submits the most shoe box gifts by the end of National Collection Week each year wins! Your boxes will be submitted to Fellowship Bible Church or your local collection center for OCC, and you must be in the River Valley Area to enter the Contest. If you are unsure, just ask :). Typically at The Go Store, you can make a great box for about $10, so it's good to budget $20 per box. This is a great way to get your community group or business engaged in both local and global non-profit work!
