OperationChristmasChild

 

As of previous years we will be taking part in Operation Christmas Child, providing shoeboxes filled with toys and some essentials which give and enormous sense of joy and worldwide community spirit to young children across the world, who are living in poverty or who have come from war torn situations in search of a better life.

Since 1990, more than 146 million children in over 150 countries have received the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child.  We have been a part of this success throughout the years and we hope to make this year our best collection yet.  We have invited all 3 parishes to join us and their shoeboxes will be joining ours on the collection date.

The last date for dropping off shoeboxes is Friday 10th of November.
