These precious kids are busy working at a local collection site, to get OCC shoeboxes off to bless other kids all over the world. Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritans Purse, an International Relief organization headed by Franklin Graham. Each year shoe boxes are filled with things a child living in a place of famine, extreme poverty, war, or other disaster hit areas, might need, or just be encouraged to receive - toys, toiletries, school supplies, clothing, even, yes, shoes. Each box has a label indicating boy or girl, and which age range. I've heard some amazing stories about boxes reaching a child with exactly what that little person had been needing, down to the perfect shoe size.
Find out how. This is a splendid time to give thanks, in action as well as word. Most of us (here in the cyberworld) have so much to be thankful for.
