Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes
Following last year’s success Coppelia residents have decided to support Samaritan’s Purse ‘Operation Christmas Child’ again.
They have beaten last year’s donation of 12 boxes and have so far collected 16 boxes.
When making up a box you decide boy or girl and which age bracket you would like to support. The home has collected for each age range and gender.
Samaritan’s Purse is an international relief and development organisation that works through local churches. Since 1990, 124 million children have received a Christmas shoe box in over 150 countries. A small shoebox of gifts can have such a big impact on children at Christmas.
