Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is an initiative run by Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian relief and development agency working amongst communities in need in countries across Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Samaritans Purse do more than just send shoeboxes overseas, they respond in a distinctly Christian way to issues facing people in the places where they work: issues like water and sanitation, HIV and AIDS, sustainable livelihoods along with disasters and emergencies. They choose to work through the local Church - seeing it as God’s chosen instrument to bring hope to a hurting world.
Chase Family Church supports the annual Operation Christmas Child campaign.
Margaret Thomas coordinates the filling and collection of shoe boxes and gifts from the church.
