Operation Christmas Child

In October, Celebrate Seniors organizes the seniors at Windsor at Celebration and collectively, we pack shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. 

Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has been sending shoe boxes to children around the world.  Over 150 million children in over 100 countries have received a shoe box

Here's information on the ministry, a part of the Samaritans Purse:

This past October, on three successive Wednesdays, our seniors gathered together to fold boxes, sort and choose gifts and toys, write letters of encouragement and pack the boxes.    Each of the boxes includes a note from and a photo of one of our seniors as it travels to remote parts of the world. 

The pictures above are some of our seniors as the packed over 50 boxes that will be shipped out in November.
