Operation Christmas Child - Shoeboxes (collection: 11-18 November) 

operation-christmas-childWe would like to support Operation Christmas Child which is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian international relief organisation.  Their mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. They ship these simple gifts outside the United Kingdom to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease.   

If you are part of a lifegroup you may consider filling a shoebox together but whether you do it as part of a group or on your own,  please drop off your shoebox during the national collection week:  11th-18th November.  Our nearest collection centre is John Ives Foodwear, The Thoroughfare,  Woodbridge  For further details on what to put in the shoeboxes and other information can be found on the Operation Christmas Child website or click here.
