Miss Fort Stockton and Operation Christmas Child

Posted

My name is Kaitlynn Pacheco, Miss Fort Stockton 2018. I would like to introduce one of the greatest missions projects I get to work on. Operation Christmas Child demonstrates God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local churches worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Our goal this year is to pack 150 boxes. The boxes are for boys and girls ages 2-14. Anyone is welcome to help pack a Box. If you would like to help we still need the following:

• 135 full size coloring books

• 136 tooth brushes

• 86 bath soaps

• 106 boxes of 24-count crayons

• Boys’ toys such as cars, balls, older boys’ toys, etc

• Girls’ toys such as dolls, stuffed animals, older girls’ toys, etc

• Boards games

If you would like to donate monetary means to help with the $9 shipping cost that wound help also.

Please don’t send breakable items, war toys, toothpaste, candy, and liquids.

If you would like to donate anything you can bring by First Baptist Church office from now until Nov. 5. Please join us in packing the boxes on Wednesday, Nov. 7 at First Baptist Church beginning at 7 p.m. If you have any questions, please call us at 336-3307.
