Operation Christmas Child

Good morning parents,

Today your child will be watching some videos about a charity event that our school has participated in for years:  Operation Christmas Child. By packing a simple shoebox with basic items, we are able to make an incredible impact in the life of a child in a less developed country. The children will see and hear about how these shoeboxes have positively affected people. They will see how to pack a shoebox and the journey of a shoebox from here to another child in another country.
Participation is voluntary. We have the official Samaritan’s Purse shoeboxes along with packing instructions (for a girl or a boy) at school, but the shoeboxes need to be filled at home and then brought to school. If you would like your child to bring home a shoebox and instructions, please let me know and I will do that.
Here is a link to the Samaritan’s Purse website if you would like to check it out for yourself. https://www.samaritanspurse.ca/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/
Thank you so much!
