Operation Christmas Child
It’s that time of year again- time to pay it forward! Each year, we take part in the Samaritan’s Purse initiative called “Operation Christmas Child.” For this initiative, we collect personal care items, school supplies, crafts, and toys to fill up shoe boxes that are sent overseas to children in need. Last year, we were able to put a smile on the faces of over 150 children overseas for the holiday season. Please share this with your families, friends, and community partners to help make this initiative a great success.
This year, we have a goal of sending 200 boxes overseas. We have created an Amazon Wishlist for you to get a better idea of what types of items we are looking for (see here: http://bit.ly/JMCCoperationxmas ). You can also check out the Samaritan’s Purse website for more donation ideas (See here: https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/what-goes-in-my-shoebox-suggestions/).
We ask that all donations be made to our main office no later than Friday, November 8th so that boxes can be packed and picked up for delivery by Friday, November 18th).
Thank you in advance for your involvement and generosity!
