“On behalf of Samaritan's Purse and the Operation Christmas Child team in Maidenhead,
I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to everyone involved in the local Operation
Christmas Child Campaign this year. We have been greatly encouraged by the response
which, despite the financial climate and difficulties that many people are experiencing,
resulted in a total of 6,402 shoeboxes being dispatched from Maidenhead. The boxes
have been sent to needy children in Swaziland, Belarus, and Romania.
I send my best wishes to you for a wonderful Christmas. I look forward to receiving
your support for Operation Christmas Child again next year.
Janet McGregor Maidenhead Area Co-ordinator, Operation Christmas Child”
Thank you so much for all the shoeboxes you packed and donated! Here’s a video showing
you how much joy and excitement they bring to the children that receive them, and
a letter from the local co-ordinator of this year’s shoebox appeal. If you click
on the ‘Youtube’ link on the video, you can see lots more videos of shoeboxes arriving
around the world - you might even spot yours!
