Operation Christmas Child is underway at our school, and we need everyone to contribute to this great cause! Operation Christmas Child was created by Samaritans Purse to bring joy and demonstrate God’s love to children in need around the world. We have until the 20th of November to get together items for the shoe boxes, so they can get to the areas that need them in time for Christmas.

At St. Joseph’s High School, we managed to put together 50 shoe boxes! This is the highest amount we have ever put together, we hope that this can be reached again! This is a great opportunity for people off all ages to be involved in simple project that focuses on the true meaning of Christmas. Each shoe box is filled with hygiene items, school supplies, and toys, and is given to children regardless of gender, race, or religion, students can participate in this charity by bringing items and 7 dollars for each box, to the school.
