This week is National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child. If you haven’t heard of it before, it’s an operation run by Samaritan’s Purse to provide Christmas gifts to needy children, as well as bring them hope.
I turned in two boxes this week filled with candy, toys, hygiene items and clothing (forgot to take a photo). It was actually a lot of fun going shopping for my gifts. You don’t have to spend a lot of money if you think smart. I got most of my items at Dollar Tree for a buck each. I picked up a few additional items in the Target dollar aisle and made some too. I only spent a total of $25 on two boxes full.
If this tugs at your heart strings, check out OCC on the Samaritan’s Purse website. You can watch Idol Star, Scotty McCreery, give you instructions on how-to fill your box. All the tools and information is right there. But hurry – you only have until the end of the week!
