Lighthouse Christian Academy has accepted the challenge to collect boxes for this awesome charity. Samaritan's purse has been doing these Christmas boxes since 1993. If you would like more information you can visit their site at Operation Christmas Child. As we am sure that you are all aware of this wonderful charity, you are also aware of the hope that they give in these simple boxes. You can choose to donate to this cause in a number of ways, you can fill a box (they are available outside the office at school) and bring it back to the school, you can choose to donate a monetary amount and the school will use it towards the boxes, or you can choose to donate your time (they are always asking for volunteers through Samaritan's purse, or there is a packing party on November 18th at 6:30 at the Alliance Church in Sylvan Lake). There has been a challenge issued within the school to see which classroom can collect the largest number of boxes and then receive the prize of a classroom pizza party (or other choice made by the winning class). All donations are due by November 12th.
There are a number of resources that you can access in order to see what needs to be put into these boxes (this is the link).
