One tradition the Big Guy and I look forward each year is packing shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child. Operation Christmas Child is a project of Franklin Graham’s organization Samaritan’s Purse that seeks to provide the neediest children with a simple gift. For many this may be the only gift they have ever received.
How You Can Get Involved:
- Pack a shoe box.
- Take box to your church or other drop off location.
- Find out about ways you can volunteer.
- Give a donation of $7 to cover shipping and other expenses related to getting the shoe boxes to the children. You may either include a check with your box or donate on-line. A new feature with on-line donation is the ability to track your box(s). It gives you a tracking number to include with the box.
