Operation Christmas Child

christmas shoeboxesIt’s that time of year again- Christmas! 

Have you ever thought about what it would be like if you received nothing for Christmas? Thousands of children all over the world have just that; nothing for Christmas.

Operation Christmas Child is run on behalf of the Samaritan’s Purse, where each year many people across the country collect and pack shoeboxes filled with wonderful gifts for children less fortunate than ourselves.

How can you help? 

You can help by donating an item or packing a whole shoebox filled with wonderful gifts for a child this Christmas. Shoeboxes can be packed with the following: soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, flannel, hairbrush, hat, scarf, gloves, toys, stationary, sweets.

You must not put any liquids in, chocolates or any items related to war.

By supporting and being involved with the Shoebox Appeal, you can make a difference to a young person’s life this Christmas.
