Once again, Ounsdale is joining the annual Operation Christmas Child Appeal run by Samaritan’s Purse. ‘Operation Christmas Child’ has the power to change lives. Every year, people of all ages fill shoe boxes with Christmas toys, games, toiletries etc. and these are distributed to needy children around the world. Last year, with the help of thousands of volunteers, boxes from the U.K. were delivered to 13 countries and nearly 1.3 million children received a shoe box filled with gifts – in most cases the only present these children will ever receive! If you would like to join in, please pick up a leaflet from Miss Cameron in the library or your tutor. Filled shoeboxes need to be brought to the library by Monday 12th November.
