Operation Christmas Child is an effort organized by the Christian organization Samaritan’s Purse to provide
Christmas gifts for needy children around the world. Lighthouse will be participating by collecting shoeboxes
full of gifts here at the church until the second week of November. There are specific guidelines on the
Samaritan’s purse website for what can go in the box (things like school supplies, non-liquid hygiene items, no candies or chocolates, etc.).
