We are excited to once again partner with Samaritan's Purse and support their Operation Christmas Child shoebox campaign and impact the lives of children in such a tangible way this Christmas season!
The Operation Christmas Child shoebox campaign was originally started in Charlotte in 1993 and has impacted more than 198 million children in more than 170 countries. Our goal for this year is to pack 1,400 shoeboxes by our all-school Thanksgiving Chapel on Thursday, Nov. 16 where we will pray over them as a community.
Click here for information on How to Pack a Shoebox and use these gift suggestions to pack your boxes. Shoeboxes will be collected via carpool or may be dropped off in the dining hall the week of Nov. 13-16. Middle and upper school students may sign up via the link in the Focus to volunteer at the Samaritan’s Purse Warehouse to help prepare shoeboxes to be shipped to children around the world.
