Rugby Rokeby Lions Club Supports – Operation Christmas Child

image1

This international activity organised by a charity known as Samaritans Purse started in 1993, Rugby Rokeby Lions have been involved with it since 1998. We collect the shoeboxes that the children pack and pass them on to a central distribution point. We have never counted the boxes we handle, but estimate that we get an average of 150 per year which would equate to us having passed on over 3,000 boxes to date.

The boxes contain small inexpensive items, such a crayons, pencil, colouring books, small soft toy etc. Also a personal note can be included and photo, the boxes are then distributed throughout the world wherever there is a need.  George King – President
