Operation Christmas Child
Hernando County Florida 2016
v Operation Christmas Child® is an arm of Franklin Graham’s worldwide relief organization Samaritans Purse®.
v Samaritans purse sends relief teams all over the world when disaster strikes. Their disaster relief teams help rebuild homes, provide food, water, shelter, basic necessities, and clothing. They also send medical teams all over the world treating people in need.
v Operation Christmas Child sends shoeboxes filled with necessities such as soap, washcloth, toothbrush, toothpaste, school supplies, clothing and a few toys to children in war torn impoverished nations. Many times this is the first gift these children have ever received. These children have lost their homes, their family members, and many are orphans. This simple gift filled shoebox helps to put a big smile on the faces of these children who have had very little joy in their lives.
v There are countless testimonies that you can view online at www.sptv.org of children all around the world receiving their shoeboxes. These Children are happy to get a toothbrush, a bar of soap, a barrette, and a toy to play with.
v A side note: last year Hernando County packed 5000 shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. The average cost of each shoebox is $25.00. $12,500 was spent right here in Hernando County boosting our local economy!
