"Donations and Volunteers for Operation Christmas Child"
Operation Christmas Child - to create Christmas filled shoeboxes with gifts for children who would not receive anything else.
The collection week for boxes is 15th - 22nd Nov, so plenty of time to think about this, but here is the list of items we will need for donation to help with this project. Hopefully nearer the collection date we can organise a wrapping an filling session to make up the boxes.
