Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is about giving to children who are in the midst of desperate circumstances. This year why not give something of value that brings hope to those in despair and reminds children that despite what they are going through God loves them?

This project sponsored by Samaritan's Purse, a Christian relief and evangelism organization led by Franklin Graham, allows individuals and families to fill shoe boxes with toys, schools supplies, hygiene items, clothing, jewelry, watches, flashlights, and a personal note. You can pick a boy or girl to give the box to and all you have to do is provide $7.00 to cover the cost of shipping.

What a wonderful ministry this is. Over the years, our children have learned much through participating in Operation Christmas Child. Glad you are promoting this! Blessings,
