Operation Christmas Child
The St. Joseph Vinnies this year have had the opportunity of supporting Operation Christmas Child run by Samaritan's Purse. Operation Christmas Child blesses children in other countries who otherwise wouldn't have the opportunity of celebrating Christmas by delivering shoeboxes filled with gifts that share God's love and hope.
The St. Joseph Vinnies decided to make up their shoebox for a girl 5 - 9 years of age and contributed to this shoebox a hairbrush, clips, hair ties, gel pens, coloured pencils, multi-coloured pens, a construction paper pad, toothbrushes, a soft toy elephant, a personal message and a photo of their group.
