Operation Christmas Child

Shoebox2Operation Christmas Child is an initiative of Samaritan’s Purse – a Christian relief and development organisation which works through local churches to proclaim and demonstrate the love of God to children and families in need across Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Clyst Vale takes part in this most years, asking students to fill a shoe box with items to be sent.  The shoeboxes are handed in to Student Services, collected by a volunteer  from Operation Christmas Child and distributed.
