Operation Christmas Child

My name is Michael Weinberg and I am the Volunteer Coordinator for Operation Christmas Child (OCC) on Staten Island. Mr. Jim Falcone, leader of Pack 36, recommended that I contact you regarding the possibility of sharing the 2011 OCC project.

Last year, Pack 36 and several Girl Scout troops participated in OCC 2010, collecting items and filling shoe boxes for kids in need around the world. For their efforts in this project they earned an OCC patch, as recognized by both the BSA and GSA. Our collection week is November 14th thru the 21st this year, and there are several ways Packs and Troops can get involved.

We would greatly look forward to sharing how we could partner with the BSA on Staten Island this year and believe Jim Falcone and the families that participated last year would be excellent references of the OCC project. In addition, more information can be located on the web at www.samaritanspurse.org/occ. Thank you for your time and consideration!
