Operation Christmas Child

My Granddaughter is the most wonderful mama. Just a little Grandma bragging - she is only 24 years old and has her BS degree and two precious little ones.

She took the children (my Great Grandchildren) to the workshop in their area to pack Operation Christmas Shoeboxes. And, they had a great time!


The comment she wrote  was - One of the greatest things we can do for our children is to teach them to be selfless. 
This fine boy is certainly growing up fast. He just finished his first season of playing soccer!

For more 40 years Samaritan’s Purse, an international nondenominational organization, has embraced the story of the Good Samaritan and reached out to children in need around the globe with its Operation Christmas Child program.

Often referred to as Operation Christmas Shoebox, the program sends the holiday boxes filled with stuffed toys, school supplies, crafts and toiletries, to children of need around the world.


Once packed, boxes are collected nationwide and shipped to more 100 countries and 12 million children, where they are distributed by local pastors. Some pastors use the opportunity to reach out to orphanages and other areas where children are at risk

Are you Holiday shopping?

Take care.
