    Each year, Operation Christmas Child delivers millions of shoebox gifts to children in desperate circumstances around the world. In addition to bringing happiness to boys and girls who otherwise wouldn’t receive any presents, Samaritan’s Purse also opens doors for presenting the Good News of Jesus Christ. Through children’s literature and evangelistic programs, many lives are changed for eternity.

    FC would like to invite you to join us this year as we reach out to boys and girls in the name of Jesus Christ. The goal is to collect 250 shoeboxes at FC by Nov. 7 for children who face a daily struggle against war, persecution, disease, natural disaster, poverty, illness, or neglect. Please pray that God will meet their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

    This year the high school classes will compete to see which class donates the most boxes. The winning class are awarded with a pizza party!
    If you have any questions contact Maddie Luginbill, Allison Breedlove or Robert Foshee. They will give you any information or boxes that you need! FC would like to beat last year’s number of 75 boxes. Good luck!
