Operation Christmas Child

Three Hills OCC

Sherry, Elizabeth Broers, Rachel Olson and Melissa Hooson spent Nov. 30 inspecting Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes before they were packed in cartons and transported to Central America, West Africa, the Philippines and Ukraine. There, they will be given to children who in many cases have never received a gift in their lives. “I like Samaritan’s Purse as a whole and packing Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes is super-fun,” said Sherry, 35. Her church, Bethel Fellowship, packed 65 shoeboxes full of toys, school supplies and hygiene items. “Operation Christmas Child gives people hope and reminds them that God knows about them and cares for them,” Sherry explained.
