St. Mark Lutheran Church at 11900 Chillicothe Rd. in Chesterland is an area collection center for Operation Christmas Child (OCC) this year. The community is invited to fill shoeboxes with gift items for either a boy or a girl, between the ages of 2 and 14. All of the donated items must be new. Clothing and accessories, hygiene items, school supplies, and small toys are requested. The boxes will ultimately be delivered by Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization, to children overseas who live in poverty. Each child will also receive a Gospel booklet with their box. Although any shoebox may be used, boxes are available now at St. Mark. Pick up an empty box or drop off a filled box at the church, Sunday-Thursdays from 8am-noon. Masks must be worn in the building. Call ahead to 440-729-1668 for contactless delivery. The final date for box drop-off is November 23. www.StMarkChester.org.
