Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Their mission is to provide shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies to local partners as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. We have partnered with Operation Christmas Child to host a “Pack-A-Present” Party. LifeKids began collecting items in September, On Sunday, November 10th we then pack all of the items into individual presents! Each kid will have the opportunity to pack their own box. Following our “Pack-A-Present” party, Samaritan’s Purse ships 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.
