The Mission Committee invites everyone to participate in Operation Christmas Child. Pick up a specially marked shoe box at the church. Fill it with small gifts for either a boy or a girl. Each box will contain a pamphlet listing suggestions for items to place in the box, and instructions for marking it.
Return the filled box to the church by November 23. The Mission Committee will take them to the distribution center in Manhattan for shipping.
Operation Christmas Child was founded in 1953 by Franklin Graham. The project has delivered over 100 million boxes to 150 countries. For more information about Operation Christmas Child, visit http://www.samaritanspurse.org/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/
