About Operation Christmas Child

It starts with a shoebox..

Christmas is a wonderful time of family, friends, gifts, and of course, Jesus; the greatest gift. In other countries however, some do not have a Christmas. This is where Operation Christmas Child comes in. With the help of churches across the world, they send Christmas presents to kids who normally wouldn't get one along with the message of baby Jesus and His mission to save us all. At Holy Trinity we help this goal by putting some of those presents together each year. The simplest way you can help is to donate shoe boxes. You can either wrap them like a present at home or we can do it here. The second and powerful way you can help is to shop. In the narthex you will find a shopping list on the board. These are a list of items that can go into a present. Please take one and take it with you when you shop. If you spot something on the list, please consider purchasing it and either creating your own present at home or dropping it off here at the office for the mass pack in November. The last way you can help is consider making a $7 donation. each box requires $7 dollars to make its trip to another part of the world.
