Operation Christmas Child Collects Over 100 Boxes
Posted on 12/03/2018
Thank you to the Bishop Ahr Families who participated in the CSAC Operation Christmas Child activity. Approximately 110 shoeboxes filled with a variety of gifts such as toys, school supplies, hygiene items, socks, hair clips, mints, gum, and other gifts will be given to poor children in developing nations.

Operation Christmas child is a unique worldwide outreach of Samaritan’s Purse. Each year this organization share’s God’s love with millions of poor, sick, and suffering children by hand-delivering these shoeboxes.

These Christmas presents not only bring great joy to precious girls and boys, they also open hearts to bring the Good News of God’s love to millions of hurting children and their families. This project is personal – a shoebox is as unique as the person packing it! Most of the children receiving the gifts come from families that are not able to give them Christmas presents. For most of them, these are the first gifts they’ve ever received. They will never forget it.
