For the past several years our kidnicks have participated in the Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child Project.
Do you know about this?
In a nutshell, you pack a shoe box with goodies for a child in an underprivileged country. You then locate a drop off location in your area from the website and deliver your box between November 12 and November 19. The boxes are shipped and delivered to children around the world. You can choose the age group and gender of the child you help, as well. We have packed items like socks and jammies, hard candies and toothbrushes (hmmm...wonder why I typed those two together), crayons, paper,etc. You get the picture. We have even received letters from the children who received our boxes.
What a rewarding experience it was.
Now is a terrific time to get lots of items for the boxes at back to school sales.
We are participating...will you?
