Hey Highlands family we are so excited to partner with Samaritans Purse for the 16th year in a row. They are on a mission to share the Gospel to over 100 countries across the globe. We would love for you to take part in this by two ways: 1. Donating to Columbus Highlands Operation Christmas Child Virtual Serve Project. We are asking for a contribution of $10 per shoebox for shipping, which goes directly to Samaritan's Purse. Please use the link below to contribute to the shipping cost. https://fundraise.samaritanspurse.org/fundraiser/3971368/dashboard/overview?is_new=true 2. Contribute by donating and dropping off the following items to our home: - pencils - pens - paper (notebook, construction, coloring paper, etc.) - toothbrushes - coloring books Please contact the leaders of this project to coordinate a drop off time and date to our home. WE BELIEVE AND ARE PRAYING THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO PACK AND BLESS 200 CHILDREN ACROSS THE GLOBE! We want you to know that every child that is blessed by this generous donation is going to hear the gospel in their own language. They are offered a Bible study when they receive the box. You can support Operation Christmas Child in advance by giving financially or by donating the items above. Together, we will be able to help so many people in Jesus’ Name! Thanks so much for your generosity! We will be packing the 200 boxes on 10/8 from 12PM - 2PM. This project will be uploaded in September, please be on the lookout for that project! We are excited for this upcoming Christmas season and all that God has in store for this project! Thank you for generosity and hearts to serve not only here locally but to over 100 countries!
