COVID-19 Not Stopping Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas ChildCOVID-19 isn't stopping Operation Christmas Child this year in Russell nor around the world.

Project leaders Alice Hammack and Sheryl Turner were guests on KRSL's Morning Show on Wednesday. Hammack says there's a new way you can send a gift-filled shoebox.


To make a shoebox online, go to Samaritan's Purse website.

Of course, you can still drop off a gift-filled shoebox in person, but at a new location this year according to Turner.

If you're interested in helping with Operation Christmas Child, Hammack invites you to a special project leaders workshop.

Operation Christmas Child is a program of Samaritan's Purse, a non-denominational Christian organization led by Franklin Graham, that delivers boxes, filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items, to children who are living in the midst of poverty, war, disease or natural disaster.
