We are happy to have joined up with Calvary Chapel of Cedar City to help them forward the Operation Christmas Child mission for 2018. Operation Christmas Child is ran by Samaritans Purse, a Christian based non-profit organization. Each year people and businesses pack a shoebox for children all over the world who would otherwise not receive a gift. These shoeboxes contain necessity items such as school supplies and toiletries, along with toys and literature about Jesus.
My Wonderful Wreaths has committed $5 for every wreath sold to go towards Operation Christmas Child. So far this year, we have been able to fund or collect enough items that we threw a very successful packing party on July 17th in Cedar City. This packing party packed over 100 shoeboxes and collected enough to ship 12 shoeboxes. Our goal was 100 so we a very excited to have met it. We also raffled off a wreath. Here are the pictures and videos from the event.
We are working towards hosting another packing party in October. The national collection week for all shoeboxes is in November 19-23 and the goal for Southern Utah is 5,300 shoeboxes. Let's do it!!!
