Operation Christmas Child II

On Monday, we mentioned the grandchildren were packing Operation Christmas Child boxes. Last night, we got the rest of the items they wanted to put into the boxes.

As you can see, we may have more stuff than will fit in three boxes. So, not only do the grandchildren get to deliver boxes, there will be an extra box ... or two ... being dropped off.

If you haven't looked into Operation Christmas Child, check it out. It's pretty simple. Just use an empty, standard size shoe box or a small plastic container. If you wrap it, wrap the box & lid separately.

Decide if the gift is to be for a boy or a girl, and what age: 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14. You can print out a label here. Fill out the label and tape it to the top of your box.

Put your gift items in the box. Here are suggestions for items to put in the box.

The grandchildren are excited about. We are too. But most of all, we hope there's some joy that'll be experienced by a needy child somewhere.
