In Las Vegas on November 14, volunteers at the Life Springs Christian Church packed up a multitude of shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child in a massive pre packing party, this group of hard working folks get together every year to make sure that children across the world can get a present for that special day. The entire day was spent with folks volunteering their time, both at the church and at home, in pre packing boxes, to help spread a little joy to kids who may have never received a Christmas gift before. Brenda Meehan, Jamie Padilla, and Jennie Quillan all took time out of their busy day to have a chat, film a couple of videos and show just what goes into a shoebox gift.
National collection week for Operation Christmas Child kicks off this week in Las Vegas on Saturday, November 15, 2014 at the Life Springs Christian Church as the forerunner to next week’s drive, from November 17 through to the 24th. This charitable collection is set up and run each year to help 10 million “needy” children across the globe who otherwise will not be getting anything for Christmas.
