Operation Christmas Child 2017
Posted on November 20, 2017
On Thursday night Nov 16 the CPCS Bothell family got together to pack shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child, which is an organization that gives shoeboxes filled with toys, hygiene items, and school supplies to impoverished children in third world countries. On Sunday night we finished packing the shoeboxes and our grand total was 952 boxes!! Praise God! That is 952 children to receive presents that don't have barely anything including basic hygiene items like soap and toothbrushes.
With 952 boxes packed we filled more than any other church or organization in our region! The local drop off center helpers were surprised at our large final number and grateful. Thank you all for your donation and support. Special thanks to Glynis Morris, Mari and Alin Rujoni, and Cheri and Megan from the elementary office for helping organize the event and the large amount of donations, and Ron and Kim Moisant for 750 boxes of markers. Thank you all for blessing 952 children this Christmas!
