Peru church hosting children Christmas gift drive

Posted by wlpo on November 12, 2012

Socks, pens, and a bouncy ball- Christmas gifts that your kids probably wouldn’t get excited about could mean a lot to a child that never receives Christmas presents.

Give a shoe box packed with small toys, school supplies and necessities to children around the world during Operation Christmas Child.  The program is part of the larger charity, Samaritan’s Purse.

Packed shoe boxes are being collected at Grace Bible Fellowship on Shooting Park Road in Peru through next Monday.  You could include gifts like toothpaste, pencils, and balls.  Use a regular sized shoe box and gift wrap the box and lid separately so volunteers will be able to check inside of the boxes without unwrapping the gift.  $7 for shipping should also be included in the box.

You can learn more by listening to an interview available at the AM 1220 WLPO news page.
