What can you do with the box your new shoes came in? Fill it with special gifts for a child and open their heart to the love of Christ through Operation Christmas Child.
How can you participate? Find a box. Decide on a boy or a girl and pick an age range. Fill it with appropriate gifts like toothpaste, school supplies, hard candy, toys, and socks. Donate $7.00 to cover the overseas shipping. Pray for the child and then drop if off at Timberline Church before November 24.
