Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes 2017

All year we have collected certain items needed to fill our shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child, part of Franklin Graham’s Samaritan’s Purse. Volunteers have worked all year keeping up with what was brought in, counting and storing. Then volunteers were needed to get all the items ready to be packed into the boxes. We are asked to take items out of store packaging, as it is difficult for some foreign areas to get rid of paper, plastic, etc.

Finally, all was organized and we had volunteers come to actually pack the shoeboxes. We ended up packing 200!! They will be loaded on Wed. night, 11-15-17 after Bible Study, to be delivered the next day.

We had a snack of hot dogs with chili (thanks Gail Osborne for the homemade chili), chips, cookies and brownies (thanks Jeff Peel for the great brownies). We needed all this goodness to help us work! Haha!

Thank you to all the volunteers that worked collecting, organizing, and packing.FullSizeRender - Copy (2)
