    Elementary through high school students may participate in the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child program by filling out an empty shoe box with items for a child. These boxes are sent to different countries where persecution, disease, poverty and neglect are present and given to young boys and girls. The boxes carry the news of Jesus, but also provide the child with hygiene items and small toys. Empty shoe boxes and informational flyers may be found in Robert Foshee’s Room 608. Once the boxes are filled, please return them back to Room 608 by Nov. 10. As a school, our goal is to collect 250 shoe boxes!
