Operation Christmas Child

From today until Friday 5th November, OWPS is collecting filled shoeboxes and individual items in the school office.

The mission of Operation Christmas Child (run by Samaritan’s Purse) is to provide God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world and to share the Good News of Jesus Christ at Christmas.

For some children, this is the only gift they will have ever received. In these difficult times, many are struggling to make ends meet or to come to terms with a change in lifestyle – but the poorest of the poor are most affected and children need to know they are loved; today more than ever.

If you feel able to pack a box or simply give a small gift to the shoebox appeal, Orton Wistow Primary School are collecting both filled shoeboxes and individual items which will be safely packed and processed by a local group.

Gifts and boxes can be dropped off into prepared collection boxes in the school reception, between now and Friday November 5th. Thank you!
