Operation Christmas Child

Photos from 2015, but we have supported this every year to date ~ 2016.
6th Slough Brownies, Guides, Parents, Church Members, Guiders and friends pack over 100 boxes for Operation Christmas Child each year. The charity collect the boxes to take them to be sent to children in need.

Every year Operation Christmas Child is made possible through the amazing support of thousands of children and adults in the UK and Ireland. In 2010, for example, the charity had the joy of sending nearly 1.12 million shoeboxes bursting with joy from the UK, and several thousand more from Ireland, to children living in parts of Africa, Central Asia and Eastern Europe. This work has continued on in to 2016.

Operation Christmas Child works by taking the gift-filled box and hand delivering it to children in need, with no regard to their background or beliefs. We work with local partners on the ground to ensure that the gift-filled box is delivered with integrity and with respect to the local culture.

Where culturally appropriate, our overseas partners will make available a booklet of Bible stories, which gives a message of hope and an explanation of the true meaning of Christmas - God's gift of His Son, Jesus.
