Your View: Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes

SHOEBOXES packed by Operation Christmas Child contain six categories of items.

They are something to love, e.g. teddy bear; to wear, e.g. a beanie; some hygiene gear, e.g. soap and a face washer; to play with, e.g. a ball; educational, e.g. a book, notepad and pencils; something special, e.g. a photo of and note from the person packing the box.

This is just the beginning. The shoebox uplifts the spirit of the child, and their parents, and flows on to the wider community. As well as bringing joy to children in need, the shoebox often opens doors for our National Leadership Teams to provide longer-term community development projects such as clean water, schools, healthcare, vocational training and community empowerment programmes.

OCC works with other groups to provide food, medical supplies and emergency relief teams in Australia and overseas.

Let’s all try to make a difference and also look after people around us, nurture and build them up, caring and loving starts with us at home.
