Bluffton Baptist Church Goes to Operation Christmas Child Processing Center
Bluffton Baptist Church out of Bluffton, Georgia volunteered their time this week to go to the Operation Christmas Child Processing Center in Atlanta. They helped send shoe boxes full of gifts overseas.
Atlanta is one of nine distribution centers for the program operated by Samaritan's Purse. The goal is to send over 10 million shoe boxes to needy overseas children. Last year, 8 million boxes were shipped out.
Volunteers say it has given them a new outlook on life and helped them see what they've been taking for granted.
"When you're inspecting the boxes you actually see bowls and spoons, some things that you wouldn't think children would need but this gives you a whole new outlook on what those children really need," said Stephanie Hodges, Volunteer.
If you missed collection week you can still send boxes to headquarters at:
Operation Christmas Child
P.O. Box 3000
801 Bamboo Rd.
Boone, N.C. 28607
