Local churches participating in Operation Christmas Child

November 9, 2011

Local churches are taking part in the Samaritans Purse Operation Christmas Child project.
This Christian based organization offers this nationwide project for children everywhere. It all starts with a shoe box. Citizens can donate toys to the churches or build their own shoe box. All you have to do is empty a standard size shoe box or a small plastic container and if you choose you can decorate it as desired, but Christmas wrapping is encouraged.
