It’s Time to Begin Collecting for OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD !!
Since 1993, Samaritan’s Purse has collected more than 168 million shoeboxes packed with toys and other fun items and delivered them to boys and girls in need around the world in partnership with local churches. Many boys and girls who receive shoebox gifts also enroll in The Greatest Journey, our 12-lesson follow-up discipleship program, where they learn to follow Christ and share Him with others. Millions of boys and girls have participated in this dynamic course so far. NOW is the time for us to begin COLLECTING ITEMS which we will later PACK into SHOEBOX GIFTS.
Here are items you can be on the LOOKOUT for now:
Small stuffed animals, Misc. accessories (hair ties/bows, sunglasses, jewelry); Hygiene Items (brush/comb, bar soap, washcloths, toothbrush, (no toothpaste allowed); and craft items.
There will be a COLLECTION BOX in the church! THANK YOU SO MUCH !!
