It’s Almost Here! Giving Tuesday 2020

Hi CLA Family,

It’s almost go time! We are one week away from our biggest fundraising event of the year, Giving Tuesday, and we have set a goal to raise $10,000 in just 24 hours to go towards our “Matching Donation” Drive.  It’s true that it takes a village to ignite real change, so we are pumped to have our supporters rally with us to create a lasting impact through giving.

If you haven’t done so already, please “Like” us on Facebook, follow us on Instagram, and tell your friends and family about our campaign.  Spreading the word gets our voices heard and the donations rolling in!

To give, Text “donate” to 860-362-3202

Operation Christmas Child

‘Tis the season of giving! Every year, Christian Life Academy students pack shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. These boxes are a way for missionaries to spread the good news of the Gospel. In a way, each box is like a missionary!

Don’t forget to pray for your box and the child who will receive it throughout the year. It is amazing how God can use such a small thing like a shoebox to bless children and their families all around the world!

This week [November 16th-22nd] is National Collection Week for OCC, and as a school we will be collecting boxes until Friday, November 20th. Please have your child bring their box into school or drop off your family’s box during car line. Brookfield First is our community collection center. If you are unable to bring your box in by Friday, the last day you can drop off your boxes is this Sunday, November 22nd.

How to Pack a Shoebox

Packing a shoebox is easy and a fun activity to do as a family. Don’t panic if you didn’t receive a box from the school, because you can use a regular shoebox! When your family is packing the shoebox, think about what a child in the age group you’ve chosen would like to receive. Each box has a “wow” item like a pair of shoes or an “anchor” toy, such as a baby doll. These items are big ticket items! Like a toy truck, a stuffed animal, and even a soccer ball with a pump. Hygiene items like washcloths, bars of soap, and toothbrushes are welcome additions. Accessories are also really great add-ons to your box. The children receiving these gifts appreciate socks, hair clips, hats, and mittens just to name a few. Smaller toys also bring a lot of joy! Finally, don’t forget to include school supplies.

For more information about packing boxes and gift ideas, please visit Samaritan’s Purse.

Do not include: Candy; toothpaste; used or damaged goods; war-related items such as toy guns, or military figures; chocolate or food; fruit rolls or other fruit snacks; drink mixes (powdered or liquid); liquids or lotions; medications or vitamins; breakable items such as snow globes or glass containers; aerosol cans.

Brookfield First is looking for volunteers to help load the OCC cartons on the truck this Sunday, November 22nd. If you are interested in helping, please call the Main Office.

Thank you!
