8 November, 2013 (All day)
Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Local churches, merchants and communities partner together to share this act of love during this season of thanksgiving in preparation for the celebration of Christmas. Please join together in preparation for National Collection Week, November 18-25.
A Shoebox is a simple cardboard or plastic shoebox filled with specific children’s items collected at local designated drop off points then delivered to packaging centers for shipment.
We will post more information on the Morgan City website and in the windows of local businesses around town. Watch for the posters this week. Included will be a list of approved items.
Let’s make this a special occasion for our children and grandchildren to take part in for the upcoming holiday. A season of giving!
