Special thanks to Elizabethtown

2 months 12 days 20 hours ago |5 Views | | | Email | Print

I’m writing to thank Elizabethtown area residents for their generosity in helping thousands of suffering children worldwide this Christmas. Through their efforts, we were able to collect more than 24,000 shoeboxes — filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items — for Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind.


These simple gift-filled shoeboxes communicate to needy children that they are loved and not forgotten.


Although drop-off locations in the Elizabethtown area are closed until November 2014, shoebox gifts can be packed any time. Gifts are received year-round at Samaritan’s Purse (801 Bamboo Road, Boone, N.C., 28607) or using the project’s online tool, where donors can virtually build a box. 


To get involved, visit samaritanspurse.org or call 704-583-1463.


Thanks again to everyone who participated in this project. A simple gift, packed with love, can communicate hope and transform the lives of children worldwide.


Sincerely,


Chris Ramsey
