Operation Christmas Child is a project headed up by senior, Taitha Ross. OCC is an organization stemming from Samaritan's Purse, a not-for-profit organization that works to provide Christmas cheer to children in need over the globe. Tabitha will be providing shoebox forms that the students can pick up, fill with small toys, toiletries, and other goodies. She will take them to the collection facility for shipping to children in poverty over the globe.
Tabitha gave a presentation to the high school today, explaining the project. She would also like to let the entire Island School 'ohana know about this and encourage them to participate. Boxes are available in to pick up in the Front Office, fill, and then drop off starting today through next Friday, November 16.
Kudos to Tabitha, who is already making a positive difference in our world! For more information, visit their website: https://www.samaritanspurse.org/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/
