Sept. 14- Shoebox collection kickoff


Staff Writer

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

The 2013 kick-off event for the Operation Christmas Child shoebox ministry will be held Saturday, Sept. 14 at First Presbyterian Church in London.  

The event will begin at 10 a.m. A prayer will be given for God’s blessing on this year’s ministry and, for those who have not participated in the program in the past, it is a chance to learn about the ministry and what items are allowed/not allowed in the shoeboxes.

Each year, Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan’s Purse, brings joy and hope to children worldwide through simple gift-filled shoeboxes and evangelistic materials.
