Operation Christmas Child is a wonderful way to share the Christmas with a child. Samaritan’s Purse is an International Relief Organization based in Boone, North Carolina, USA. To date OCC has distributed over 100 million filled shoeboxes to needy children all over the world. Our family really enjoyed this project. We filled one box for a girl and one for a boy. Part of the fun is figuring out just how much you can get in a shoebox. Practical items and toys are suggested. We included a sewing kit for the girl and a hammer and nails for the boy. Our toy items included a doll for the girl and a deflated soccer ball and pump for our boy. For $7.00 you can help pay for shipping your box and even get tracking to see what country it goes to! It’s not too late to pack a box! Join the fun!
