The First United Methodist Church of New Milford will be accepting gift-filled shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child until November 22. Operation Christmas child is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse, led by Franklin Graham.
The shoe boxes are sent all over the world to children in need, who are victims of natural disasters, poverty and war. For many, this will be the only joy they will have.
We ask you to fill a shoe box with school supplies, personal hygiene items, toys and hard candies as a suggestion. We also ask that you do not put in liquids or any toys related to violence or war. Please include on the front if the gift is for a boy or girl, and age of child. We also ask that a check or money order be placed in the box for $7 made out to Samaritan's Purse. This will cover shipping and materials that are placed in the box sharing the love of the Lord. For many this will be the only opportunity to learn of the love of Jesus.
For further information, call Rae Fiske at 465-3760, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Pamphlets are available to put with the boxes; posters, prayer cards and DVDs that can be shared with organizations are also available.
