Operation christmas child is a project run by the christian charity, Samaritan's Purse. Every year our Cumbernauld and Falkirk branches fill shoeboxes with toiletries, toys, sweets and stationary to send to children in countries who do not experience christmas as we do. It's a great project where we can send a personal, unconditional gift to child who would otherwise not receive gifts at Christmas. This year we sent 108 boxes from Cumbernauld and 57 boxes from Falkirk. I would like to thank everyone again for their generosity and continued support in a project which has become so important to many of our congregation.
