Operation Christmas Child is a project of a disaster relief agency, Samaritan's Purse. Every year, communities get together to fill & pack shoe boxes with basic necessity items (bar soap, wash cloth, toothbrush, hairbrush, etc.) and small toys so that children around the world will receive a gift for Christmas. Bring you filler items and your friends and/or relatives to this community-wide event in which we will sort and pack Shoebox gifts for children all over the world. Your contribution could have a life-changing impact on a child. For a list of items to put in the Shoeboxes, please click here. The most under-served age group is 10-14 year old boys. It is my hope to raise enough funds to purchase at least 100 deflated soccer balls with mini air pumps so that these boys get to be a kid a little longer. If you would like to contribute, please click here. We truly hope that Greenwood can come together and pack 500 Shoeboxes. Can we count on you?
Saturday, November 16, 2019 beginning at 1:00 p.m. until all Shoeboxes are filled.
