Every year our students are excited to support Operation Christmas Child, a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse (www.samaritanspurse.org). Last week in chapel, the students saw an inspirational DVD showing the impact these gift-filled shoe boxes make on poverty-stricken children all over the world. Now, they are being encouraged to contribute to the hundreds of boxes that Baymonte will send. Last year, our school packed 530 shoe boxes full of hygiene items, school supplies, clothing, toys and candy. Elementary students will be filling boxes according to the teachers’ directions (each class approaches the project slightly differently). The Middle School students will have a Packing Party on Thursday, November 15th. They will be collecting shoe box items between now and then in their Bible classes. The ultimate deadline for all Baymonte students is the 15th.
