Operation Christmas Child
November 24, 2013
Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child is quickly approaching, November 24-28. In addition to toys, clothes, and school supplies, hygiene items are always good to include in the shoeboxes: toothbrushes, small tubes of toothpaste, mild soap (in a plastic bag), brush or comb, washcloth. One of the shoebox distributors in Bosnia tells about watching the little children open their shoeboxes. "They were so excited about their boxes. One little boy of about 3 years old pulled out his toothbrush and started brushing his teeth right away." Though the gifts are small, God can use them to change the hearts of the children and families who receive them. If you are unable to fill a shoebox, please consider making a donation of hygiene items. A box will be on the back table for all donations and our team will pack them into shoeboxes.
