On 11/25 we dropped off 17 boxes of presents at a local Operation Christmas Child drop off center. These boxes of toys, school supplies, and hygiene tools will be sent to children all over the world who might otherwise be empty handed this holiday season.
We fundraised on 11/12 and 11/19, and raised nearly $200 dollars selling baked goods, knit winterwear, and holiday cards! Next, we used the funds to purchase toys, soap, crayons, etc. and then packed them into boxes.
I’m so excited for how things turned out… we sent out a lot more boxes than I anticipated, and it just set such a good tone for the season of giving. Thank you to everyone who helped with all phases of this project! It was a great success, and I’m sure many children will receive the joy of Christmas this year through what we’ve done. 🙂
