Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes have been posted! Thank you GCCC family and friends for your kind generosity in packing a total of 112 shoeboxes this year.
The response was wonderful and many children will be blessed with toothbrushes, soap, clothing, toys, pencils, personal letters and much more this Christmas.
They will now journey across the ocean to the arms of a child in a developing south-east Asian country. Year Three will be tracking some of the boxes on their long journey to find out exactly where they end up and the places they need to go to get there.
Through Operation Christmas Child, Year Three have had the opportunity to learn about the true meaning of Christmas, promotion and marketing, and even Australia’s global connections. “Do for others what you want them to do for you” became very real as they explored how other children live in these developing countries and ways that they can help.
Thanks again for contributing to such a worthwhile cause.
