The Arden Anglican School community sought to share the joy of Christmas to children in developing countries by again collecting donations for Operation Christmas Child’s (OCC) Christmas box appeal. Organised by Samaritan’s Purse, the appeal aims to give Christmas gifts to children who may not otherwise receive a gift at this time.
A delighted Mrs Karen Moss, Arden’s OCC Coordinator shared: “This year we packed a total of 76 shoe boxes and these will be shipped to children in rural Cambodia and the Philippines. This is a great way to put into action our school’s Christian values of loving others unconditionally just as God loves us. The thoughtfulness and effort that went into each of these boxes was amazing and we are truly grateful for the servant hearted contribution by our Arden community.”
