I’m writing to thank LaFayette residents for their generosity in helping thousands of suffering children worldwide this Christmas.
Through their efforts, we were able to contribute towards 18,300 shoeboxes collected within the Chatahoochee Valley area—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.
Shoebox gifts can be packed any time and 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 (770) 777-9342.
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.
