Operation Christmas Child underway
It’s National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child and the Church of Christ in Bridgeport, a newly designated official drop-off location, has been busy collecting items for shoeboxes for the evangelism tool for Samaritan’s Purse International Relief.
Stacie Harden, local director of the drive, says that they have been working all week on packing the donated items into boxes for shipment first to Alliance, then Denver and finally, around the world to children of all ages. Last year, their boxes ended up in Mexico and were filled with things like school supplies, sewing kits, fishing kits, sports balls and hygiene items.
