Samaritans Purse Shoe Box Appeal thanks

Our final total was 148 shoeboxes.  A big thank you to all who contributed.

Below is a letter of thanks from Janet McGregor (Area Coordinator Operation Christmas Child Maidenhead)…

On behalf of Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child and our team in Maidenhead I would like to thank everyone who contributed to this year’s shoebox campaign.

This year 7251 gift-filled shoeboxes have been sent out from the Maidenhead Processing Centre, a 10% increase on last year’s total. We are delighted with this result, which reflects the hard work from all involved in this year’s campaign. The shoeboxes are now on their way to be distributed to needy children in Zambia, Ukraine, Bosnia and Albania.

My sincere thanks go to all those who brought their boxes to our processing centre in Maidenhead, or who took them to our other drop-off points, or who contributed to a collection from schools, churches and companies in the local area. Your efforts and generosity mean that 7251 underprivileged  girls and boys will receive these shoebox gifts bearing the message of God’s love this Christmas.

I would like to wish you a very Happy Christmas and New Year and I hope we can look forward to your support for our OCC campaign in 2016.

kind regards

Janet McGregor
Area Coordinator Operation Christmas Child Maidenhead
