Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child is a project of the international relief organization, Samaritan’s Purse. Our mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. We ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S. Operation Christmas Child is usually done from the end of October to the beginning of November.
Year around Lafayette Alliance Church members and friends collect gently used clothing. We sort the clothing by size and store away until we host a Clothing Give Away three times a year on a Saturday from 9am to Noon. We can always use clothing donations, help in sorting and setting up the evening before an event and help taking down on Sunday afternoon. Please email Judy Livingston firstname.lastname@example.org or Diane Smith email@example.com if you have any questions. Thank you!”
