Operation Christmas Child
We consider it a privilege to participate in Operation Christmas Child, the shoebox ministry managed by Samaritan’s Purse bringing hope to disadvantaged children around the world.
Operation Christmas Child is a hands-on project that brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoeboxes packed by Canadians. Struggling children are blessed with shoeboxes filled with toys, hygiene items, school supplies, and other items. It is one way to remind children suffering as a result of war, poverty, famine, disease, and disaster that they are loved and not forgotten.
If you have donations to contribute to the shoeboxes, please see Lindsay, Sue or Gladys. If you'd like to donate, but aren't quite sure what to include, the Samaritan's Purse website has a list of suggestions to make shopping easy!
