Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse International Relief. The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God's love in a tangible way to needy children around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. This is accomplished by providing kids with Christmas presents enclosed in shoe boxes. Volunteers are needed for fundraising, planning the packaging party, promoting the campaign and delivering boxes to donation locations. The St. Francis-in-the-Fields community packed and sent 90 boxes in 2012!
During the first 2 weeks of December gift cards are collected for the residents of Dayspring Center and for teens that are served by the Caring Center.
