Operation Christmas Child 2017

Nov 20, 2017

Operation Christmas Child Boxes

Employees at Rhodes & Williams once again participated in the Operation Christmas Child Campaign put on by Samaritan's Purse. Employees filled shoeboxes with hygiene items, school supplies and toys and are given to children in need around the world.

Shoe boxes from Operation Christmas Child transcend all barriers—language, culture, geography, and politics—to give joy and hope to children throughout the world.

This year we're proud to say we collected 41 boxes to help bring joy to millions of children around Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe and West Africa.

History: Operation Christmas Child was started in 1990. In 1993, Operation Christmas Child grew and was adopted by Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian organization run by Franklin Graham. To date, Operation Christmas Child has collected and distributed over 135 million shoebox gifts worldwide. In 2016, Canadians donated 664,525 Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes for hurting children around the world.
