Grove Sunday Adopt-a-Box Program

NetworkPeninsula / Items Needed / Grove Sunday Adopt-a-Box Program


It’s that time of year when Grove Christian Outreach Center looks to its supporters to help bring awareness of their ministry in Grove to the greater Williamsburg community by sponsoring various activities and drives that will support programs and ongoing needs and just to tell people who they are and what they do!!  The needs are great and so are the opportunities to help!

This year they are looking for churches, businesses, civic groups and individuals to “Adopt a Box”.  They are officially calling this the  “Grove-trotter Boxes” as they will be available for “adoption” throughout the year beginning in March with ourGrove Sunday Awareness Month.

It’s simple………..

  • Choose the “themed” box your group would like to “adopt”.
  • We will deliver the box to you along with brochures about GCOC.
  • You keep the box for one month and collect the “themed” items.
  • At the end of the month, we will come and pick up the box and the donated items.
  • The box will then be available for another group to “adopt”.


Each box will include a list of “Requested Items” that donors can take with them to shop.  Let us bring one out to you and help us fill our shelves!!  Below is a pic of our “Rise & Shine Breakfast” box.
