OCC lets locals bring the light to children in need

Staff Writer

It comes around every year, with a message of hope, unity, peace and goodwill toward all people.
One tradition has continued to spread, and offers people the opportunity to look into the truest meaning of the holiday. Giving a message and a gift to those who need it the most.
Operation Christmas Child, one of the programs conducted by Christian organization Samaritan’s Purse, collects shoebox sized packages filled with small gifts, hygiene items and a message of hope and salvation to children in developing regions throughout the world.
Collection week ends at noon on Monday, Nov. 21, so make sure to get your boxes packed and delivered to Guymon’s Church of the Nazarene, located at 2214 N. Sunset Lane in Guymon. For more information, contact Jill Johnson through the church at (580)338-3553. More information on Operation Christmas Child can be found online at samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child.
