Christmas in August!

You have probably already seen the Christmas tree outside the chapel and been reminded that it’s that time of year again! We are once again giving you plenty of time to shop for Operation Christmas Child, a project run through Samaritan’s Purse! On the tree you will find suggestions of gifts for boys and girls. Take a list off the tree and after you have done your shopping, bring your donations back and put them under the tree. Monetary donations are also welcome! We’ll use that money to pay the $7.00 shipping and handling fee that is requested for each box. Last year we were able to assemble, with your donations, 56 boxes that were sent in November to Samaritan’s Purse!

Maybe you would like to assemble your own box? It’s very easy and makes a great family project. If you would like to do that, we will have Operation Christmas Child boxes under the tree for you to take. Decide on whether or not you would like to shop for a boy or girl and then which age: 2-4 yrs., 5-9 yrs. or 10 – 14 yrs. From there use our suggested gift list or come up with some ideas of your own! We also have an excellent DVD that you can borrow and watch that will show you how to pack a box – we’ll gladly share it with you!

Thanks, in advance, for your support of this project!
