Give a Greater Gift this Christmas!

This Christmas give gifts to kids who would normally get nothing for Christmas.

Every year since 1993 Samaritan's Purse has collected shoe boxes for children around the world that would normally be getting nothing. They call this effort Operation Christmas Child. These gifts send the message of hope and God's love to the children they reach.

Donate gift boxes in honor of someone you know that you never know what to buy. Let them know you gave a child a gift in their name(s). It's a thought thing...

It is a very rewarding thing to pick out gifts for a child you don't know. My church has been involved for several years and it is a fun project. We usually set a congregational goal every year to make it a challenge.

It's a great way to get people involved and thinking about others during the holidays.
