Who knew that there’s another purpose and whole other life for our old shoeboxes?
Don’t throw your old shoeboxes away! Fill them with gifts to give to children living in third world countries this Christmas! It is definitely one way to bring Meaning and Joy to your Christmas giving for you and your family!
This mission, should you choose to accept is called “Operation Christmas Child”.
Operation Christmas Child is run by Samaritan’s Purse since 1993. I did a bit of googling and found that there are Samaritan’s Purse drop off locations in the US and they are receiving gifts until 20 December.
Here is their Website:
Tonight I had the privilege to visit the Samaritan’s Purse warehouse based in Sydney, Australia with some of our church people. Our church partnered with this organization this year and my husband and I decided that we’d like to participate as well!
