I would like to invite you to join Hillcrest Christian School’s Christmas outreach, as our students reach out to other boys and girls around the world, meeting their special needs during the holiday season. In conjunction with Samaritan’s Purse international, “Operation Christmas Child”, will provide millions of shoe-sized boxes filled with gifts and then ship them to children in need around the world. Many of these children face daily struggles against persecution, disease, natural disaster, and poverty.
Thursday, November 5th, Mrs. Gonzales’ 2nd grade class will introduce this outreach project. Each elementary student will receive a shoe-box with information on how to “fill” it. All shoe-boxes must be returned to the classrooms on Tuesday, November 17th. Along with the joy of giving, the ultimate goal is to share the message of God’s greatest gift – His Son, Jesus Christ. Many families around the world have come to know Jesus through this unique ministry.
We encourage you as parents, to get your children involved in filling their boxes. This will be the only present that many of these orphans will receive, so with this activity, your children will learn how to “share with God’s people who are in need”.
