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.
Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes will be available in the lobby at Halfmoon beginning October 14, 2018.
No toothpaste or candy will be allowed in the shoe boxes due to customs regulations.
A donation of $9 is needed to ship the box.
Collecting filled boxes will October 23 – November 11. Last day to drop off boxes will be November 11.
Call the church office for more information. (518)389-2252.
