OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Returning This Year!
This Fall our children will once again lead the way for us to participate in Operation Christmas Child. In the coming weeks you will learn how easy it is to pack a shoebox and engage in spreading the joy of the Gospel to children in great need around the world.
Please contact Sarah Thomson or Julie Freeman for more information about local participation.

Since 1993 Samaritan's Purse has delivered 135 million Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts to children affected by war, poverty, disease, famine and disasters in more than 100 countries. People of all ages pack shoe boxes with school supplies, basic hygiene items and toys and send them with prayers to bless children with an expression of God's love.

Here are some examples of some of the items you might include in your box:
