OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD SHOEBOX COLLECTION

WILL BEGIN OCTOBER 17TH.

OUR GOAL IS 250 BOXES!

Since 1993, over 188 million boys and girls in over 160 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan’s Purse works with local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ. We will be collecting filled shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child from Oct. 17th – Nov. 21st here at PWC!

 
We will be setting up a display by October 17th, with shoeboxes to take and fill.
