Samaritan’s Purse – Operation Christmas Child
Last Sunday Jackie brought some shoeboxes along to pack with gifts for needy children around the world and they were all snapped up!  Jackie writes:
Although all of the boxes are being used, people can still join in if they use a regular shoebox and cover it with Christmas paper.  I have plenty of leaflets left with donation envelopes and parcel labels should anyone need them.
I do have a couple of regular shoeboxes available if anyone wants them.  Also, the last date that I will be able to collect filled boxes from church will be 12 November.  If anyone can’t get them to me by then, they can be taken to the branch of Shoezone in Wellingborough by 18 November please.
Samaritan’s Purse do ask for a donation of £5 to cover the cost of transportation and the Bibles given to the children; to go into the leaflet envelope or it can be given online – it is all explained in the leaflet.  Many thanks!
God bless
Jackie
