Following last year’s success Coppelia residents have decided to support Samaritan’s Purse ‘Operation Christmas Child’. They are hoping to beat last year’s donation of 12 boxes.
When making up a box you decide boy or girl and which age bracket you would like to support. This year I’ve prepared a box for a boy and a girl both in the 2-4 age bracket. You also pay £3.00 towards shipping each box.
If you’d like to donate some new items, Coppelia are more than happy to receive donations. The local collection is November 5th but they will take boxes after that date to the main collection point too.
Samaritan’s Purse is an international relief and development organisation that works through local churches. Since 1990, 124 million children have received a Christmas shoe box in over 150 countries. We hope you’ll join us in helping children worldwide this Christmas.
