Every year thousands of children in need across the globe are blessed with a shoebox full of treats and essentials thanks to Operation Christmas Child.
This year Whitgift House residents packed several shoeboxes with toys, hats, gloves and toiletries.
Whitgift House residents commented on the shoebox campaign:
“Collecting the items for the children has been a real joy, I feel a great sense of accomplishment.”
“Knowing the shoebox I packed will bring comfort to a young person in poverty is so wonderful.”
“Christmas is such a special time of year, full of joy and hope – I love that I can spread that goodness to a young person in poverty.”
Whitgift House Activities Coordinator Angela dropped the boxes off to the homes closest collection point, The Entertainer in the Whitgift Centre.
