Operation Christmas Child

We have been getting ready to go to Boone, NC to the Operation Christmas Child distribution center. We are all excited to be able to go and see just how the distribution center works. We will be working for three days and will also be able to visit Samaritan’s Purse Headquarters as well.

This week AFA had a packing party to pack 200 shoeboxes that we will be taking with us to Boone. And I thought I would show you some of the pictures from the packing party. My husband, Ms. Coni Gann and Ms. Angie May were in charge of the whole thing and I think they did a great job. Just to explain, there was a boy’s side and a girl’s side and then there was a neutral table also. So depending on which box you were packing, you would go down that side. Some of the items that were put into all the boxes were: soap & wash cloths, toothpaste & toothbrushes, pencils, notebooks, stickers, goo goo eyes, and much more. In the boys’ boxes they got a hacky sack, a ball cap, matchbox cars, socks and combs. In the girls’ they got compact brushes, socks, lip gloss, teddy bears, and hair bows.
