Operation Christmas Child

For the past few days, my family and I have been packing shoeboxes for Operation Childmas Child.

It is a great way for you and your child to buy and pack a box for children who do not get the luxuries that we do during Christmas.  This organization partners with churches around the world to give a gift-filled box and to share the Good News of Jesus to hurting children. 

This weekend is the last weekend (sorry for the short notice) they are collecting boxes.  You can drop off your box at the address below from 6-7:30pm Friday, or 1-4pm on Saturday or Sunday.
