Middletown, RI – For the second year in a row, Evangelical Friends Church (EFC) Newport will serve as the host drop-off location for shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child from November 12-19, 2018.
What is Operation Christmas Child?
“The Samaritan’s Purse project Operation Christmas Child collects shoebox gifts—filled with fun toys, school supplies and hygiene items—and delivers them to children in need around the world to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way. For many of these children, the gift-filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received.
Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, has collected and delivered more than 157 million shoebox gifts to children in more than 160 countries and territories,” details Operation Christmas Child.
