Our church participated again this year in the Samaritans Purse’s Operation Christmas Child program.
Last year we sent 87 boxes and this year our church and Home school group sent 40 boxes.
Our goal last year was 90 and we came pretty close. This year we really did not have a goal and were able to send 40 boxes. Not bad.
Some families grabbed and filled their own boxes, some gave money for us to fill a box, and some family’s brought bulk items to add to boxes to fill them up.
We try to always include the basic toiletry items and grooming supplies plus some stationary supplies.
Here is a list of what we included in every box:
- bar soap
- candy that’s not chocolate
- flashlight (with extra batteries)
- pencil sharpener
- small sewing kit
- toothpaste – travel size
