Operation Christmas Child


Hey friends,


This year I am participating in a Christmas activity to fill shoe boxes with gifts for children in 3rd world countries. These shoe boxes will contain school supplies, small toys, and hygiene kits for children from 2-14. This is a world wide organization and this year my church is the drop-off spot for all of northern Utah. The shoe boxes can be provided or you can use your own shoebox, or walmart has plastic shoebo...x sized bins that will work and filled they will cost $7 to send, plus the cost of whatever it takes to fill it with the gifts. We have a goal to send out 10,000 filled boxes by mid-November which would be the largest shipment for this area if we achieve it.

If this is something you are interested in participating in, please let me know. We'd love your help and support! However, please don't feel any obligation to help... I just think its a neat idea and wanted to share the opportunity to those who may want to.

Feel free to go to www.samaritanspurse.org/occ for more info. Let me know if there are any questions.

Be blessed by being a blessing!
