Christmas Shoebox Packing Party
November 13, 2012
On November 13th, over 100 volunteers participated in the second annual Operation Christmas Child Packing Party — a joint effort of Volunteer Catawba and the Student Affairs Office. The smell of fresh popped popcorn and hot chocolate — as well as the sound of familiar Christmas tunes — filled the air, as energetic "elves" packed a total of 360 gift boxes for Operation Christmas Child. These gifts will be distributed to children in impoverished and war torn countries by Samaritan’s Purse, a nonprofit organization with the mission of sharing God's love and in a tangible way with needy children around the world.
