OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

Make a difference in a child’s life

Each Fall we pack hundreds of shoeboxes that get sent to children all around the world. Many times this is the first gift that these children have ever received!

We will be packing boxes on Saturday, Nov. 6, 2021. Stay tuned for info on how to come to our packing party!

About Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international christian organization that provides aid to victims of poverty, disaster, disease and war around the world.

For many children, this is the first gift they have ever received.
