The Jamestown Rotary Club continues to participate in Operation Christmas Child. Our club has participated for several years now and we enjoy being a part of something so wonderful. Two weeks ago, our membership was able to meet with a lady who received a shoe box from Operation Christmas Child, nearly 20 years ago in Bosnia. Her story was one that none of us will ever forget. This one little box can make all the difference in a child’s life.
“Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoe box gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan’s Purse works with local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ.” – Samaritans Purse
If you are familiar with the program, you might be interested in a change for this year! Many of us have prepared our box and dropped it off at the local collection center. However, we never really know where it ends up. Now you can! For more information, please click the Follow My Box link below.
