This is fundraising event for Operation Christmas Child. Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse and is the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind. Samaritan’s Purse is an international Christian relief and evangelism organization headed by Franklin Graham. Samaritan’s Purse works in more than 100 countries to provide aid to victims of war, disease, disaster, poverty, famine and persecution. Samaritan’s Purse has been active in Amador and Calaveras Counties recently helping the victims of the Butte Fire.
By working with churches around the world, Operation Christmas Child shares the Good News of God’s love and salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ. The shoebox gifts bless the children and provide opportunities to share the true meaning of Christmas.
Shoeboxes are packed with a “Wow” item—like a doll or soccer ball—and other fun toys, school supplies and hygiene items. Then take it to a drop-off location during National Collection Week, Nov. 16 – 23. Shoebox gifts are also received throughout the year at the Samaritan’s Purse headquarters in Boone, North Carolina.
The money raised Saturday is to cover the shoe boxes that don’t include the shipping donation.
Tickets are $5 each and they can purchase the tickets at the door. There are also raffle prizes and they do not have to be present to win.
