Operation Christmas Child a success

I am writing to thank and celebrate Roaring Fork Valley residents for spreading joy to children around the world this Christmas season. The generosity of volunteers, families and groups paved the way for us to collect 732 shoebox gifts for the Samaritan’s Purse project Operation Christmas Child — the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind.

It’s not too late for people to make a difference. You can conveniently pack a personalized Operation Christmas Child shoebox gift at Information about year-round volunteer opportunities can also be found on the website or by calling 970-618-9739.

Thank you again to everyone who participated in this project and for those who do so year after year. These simple gifts, packed with love, send a message of hope and continue to transform the lives of children worldwide.
