Operation Christmas Child - Shoebox Collection (13, 14 November)

Don't forget our Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Collection - Monday 13 and Tuesday 14 November.

“A small shoebox can have a big impact. What goes into the box is fun, but what comes out of it is eternal. Be a part of changing children’s lives all over the world in Jesus’ name through the power of a simple gift with Operation Christmas Child.  See the impact a simple shoebox gift packed and sent with love, has on a child and how it reaches into a community.” - Samaritan’s Purse

Please find below information about packing, labelling and paying shipping costs for your shoe box.

We are asking that shoe boxes are brought into school on either Monday 13 (KS2 assembly) or Tuesday 14 November (KS1 assembly).  Due to our lack of storage space please don’t bring your boxes before then.  The boxes are being collected on 14 November.

You can find out more about how the shoe boxes change lives and the work of Samaritan’s Purse here.
