Operation Christmas Child
Prince George is participating in Operation Christmas Child again this year; what a wonderful opportunity to bless so many children in need. Boxes are available for pick up from the Parish Administrator’s office Monday – Thursday from 9-4 and Friday 9-12 beginning September 14th. We will have brochures available “How to Pack a Shoebox”. You can also pick up boxes after Church or Sunday School; they are in the hallway across from the Parlor in the administrative offices building. Please use the sign out sheet and have the boxes turned back in by October 18th. Please don’t tape your boxes shut; they will be checked once they arrive in NC.
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. 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 States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.
