Operation Christmas Child provides an opportunity for people of all ages to be involved in a simple, hands-on project of Samaritan's Purse that focuses on the true meaning of Christmas - Jesus Christ - God's greatest gift.
Operation Christmas Child is a hands-on project that allows individuals and groups in Canada to help bring joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world, through gift-filled shoeboxes. It is one way to remind children suffering through war, poverty, famine, disease and disaster that they are loved and not forgotten. Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse whose purpose is: to provide clean water; disaster relief; and medical aid to people in need around the world.
Once again, Dryden Full Gospel Church is the Collection Centre for our area. Empty shoeboxes can be obtained at Dryden Full Gospel Church anytime Monday to Friday 8:00am-4:00pm. Filled shoeboxes can be dropped off November 19 & 20th between 9:00am-12:00pm and November 21st between 9:00am-1:00pm.
