Samaritan’s Purse through Operation Christmas Child thanks GAA.
A recent Instagram post about our favorite auction company, GAA Classic Cars, shows that some businesses are looking out to make sure Christmas comes for all, despite this year being tainted by the pandemic. The Greensboro based auction company recently donated Christmas showboxes to the organization. This is the help Samaritan's Purse in their efforts to collect and distribute more shoeboxes than ever before.
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Our mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. We ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.
The program was started in the United Kingdom in 1990 by Dave and Jill Cooke. Three years after this beginning, the Wales-based shoebox gift project merged in a partnership with Samaritan’s Purse, allowing us to share 20 years of expertise in relief and aid work with the project, and expand the reach of the shoebox gifts to more than 28,000 children that year. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has delivered gift-filled shoeboxes to over 168 million children in more than 100 countries.
