Operation Christmas Child

Yesterday, I volunteered at Operation Christmas Child which is an amazing organization that distributes Christmas presents in shoe boxes to children who are poor and in need. Their Mission: "To demonstrate 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." People all over America pack shoe boxes with gifts and then OCC sends them to children all over the world. Last year, 8 million children received a Christmas shoe box. Since 1993, 130 countries have received these shoe boxes! That is amazing!

You can learn more about OCC at their website which is here.

Have a great week!
God bless!
