There are millions of children around the world who have never heard how much God loves them. Operation Christmas Child collects shoeboxes filled with love, prayers and simple gifts to send to these children in partnership with churches in over 100 countries. Items to put in your shoeboxes include toys, school supplies, hygiene items (toothbrush, soap, washcloth), a stuffed animal. . or anything a child would enjoy receiving. To learn more, www.samaritanspurse.org. You can pack boxes individually, with your family, or with a group. You could even have a shoebox packing party. The boxes are collected the 3rd week in November and can be dropped off at Calvary Baptist Church, 1625 Capital Ave NE., Battle Creek. For more information, www.samaritanspurse.org/occ.
Parents and children are invited and encouraged to get involved.
