OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD IS IN HIGH GEAR.

Every year since 1993, Samaritan’s Purse has collected shoebox gifts filled with toys, school supplies, and hygiene items for children around the world. Since 1993, more than 198 million children in more than 170 countries and territories have received an Operation Christmas Child shoebox. The project delivers not only the joy of what, for many kids, is their first gift ever, but also gives them a tangible expression of God’s love.  This year OHANA is planning on packing and shipping almost 1,000 shoeboxes.  It's going to be great and the packing party is coming soon!
