Shoebox Appeal 2018

Samaritan’s Purse: Operation Christmas Child

Through the Samaritan’s Purse, Operation Christmas Child, we are sharing our love by donating shoeboxes containing gifts for children less fortunate than those at St Mary's.
 
A small shoebox can have a big impact. What goes into the box is fun, but what comes out of it is eternal. Be a part of changing children’s lives all over the world in Jesus’ name through the power of a simple gift with Operation Christmas Child.  See the impact a simple shoebox gift packed and sent with love, has on a child and how it reaches into a community.
The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to show God's love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the good news of Jesus Christ.
 
To ensure your shoebox is collected, it needs to be in school by Thursday 15th November.

A gift ideas guide leaflet can be downloaded below or spare leaflets are available from the school office.
