Operation Christmas Child

The Kids Ministry of First CRC is collecting shoeboxes this season for Operation Christmas Child!

Operation Christmas Child is an effort organized by Samaritan's Purse, an international relief organization. The 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.

Samaritan's Purse will then ship these gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; as well as to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.

First CRC is supporting this effort and our goal is to collect 100 shoeboxes! We aim to collect 60 actual boxes and to fill 40 boxes online.

We'll be collecting boxes until Sunday, November 15. All boxes (in-person) should be brought to the table in the Kids Ministry hallway. If you're able, we encourage you to include $9 to cover the shipping costs for each box.
