Operation Shoe Box - is a philanthropy that allows our church to create small boxes filled with gifts that are then sent to areas of the globe that are less fortunate. These gifts include toys, coloring books, dolls, basic hygiene items like tooth brushes, deodorant, floss, and sometimes even candies.
This year Operation Shoe Box received 52 Shoe boxes from LHBC. The boxes were sent to our local Operation Shoe Box Hub which is located in Atlanta. From Atlanta the boxes were taken to Africa and distributed to children in the countries of Cameroon and Central African Republic. Below are photos of children receiving the boxes as well as some information on those countries.
