When brothers of the North Carolina Chapter heard about Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child program, they were eager to participate. The service committee sent out information about the boxes, label and shipping fees so that brothers could turn in boxes at our regular business meetings on November 7th and 14th. Twenty brothers filled empty shoe or plastic boxes to send to children around the world. Boxes could be designed for boys or girls ages 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14. Items in the boxes included toys, school supplies, hygiene items, hard candy, t-shirts, and personal notes. Brothers paid a $7 shipping fee for their box. The service committee delivered the boxes to a drop-off location so that the boxes could meet the National Collection Week deadline of November 19th. This project is a great way to spread joy during the holiday season and put a smile on a child’s face.
