Operation Christmas Child
Our grateful thanks to all who contributed to last year's Shoebox appeal. A total of 86 boxes were sent from St Leonard's and Dalrymple as well as many others gathered in from around Ayrshire. This year Shoebox Sunday will be on November 5th and once again your help would be very much appreciated in giving a Christmas shoebox. However, like everything else, the costs involved in sending the boxes has risen, and so we have been asked if possible to enclose £5 per box towards travel costs. If you want to make up a box on line, and also track the journey of your box, just go to www.samaritans-purse.org.uk and follow the links.
“The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to show God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the good news of Jesus Christ.
Since 1990, more than 146 million children in over 150 countries have experienced God's love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child.” Samaritans-Purse.
