I’m writing to thank Fallbrook residents for their generosity in helping thousands of suffering children worldwide this Christmas. Through their efforts, we were able to collect more than 770 shoeboxes – filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items – for Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind. These simple gift-filled shoeboxes communicate to needy children that they are loved and not forgotten.
Although drop-off locations in Fallbrook are closed until November, shoebox gifts can be packed any time. Gifts are received year-round at Samaritan’s Purse, 801 Bamboo Road, Boone, N.C., 28607 or by using the project’s online tool, where donors can virtually build a box. To get involved, visit samaritanspurse.org or call (714) 432-7030.
hanks again to everyone who participated in this project. A simple gift, packed with love, can communicate hope and transform the lives of children worldwide.
