Instead of buying gifts for adult family members, we are giving a gift in honor of family members to Operation Christmas Child.
Clarice committed to packing 10 shoeboxes this year for Operation Christmas Child (OCC), which is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse.
She made her goal, and on top of that, she volunteered 5 hours over this past weekend to unload and help pack shoeboxes at Christ United Methodist Church, our local drop-off location for OCC.
First, Clarice packed her boxes for little girls and little boys.
She included a picture of herself and a hand-written note in each box.
Pink bunny rabbit for little girl!
All kinds of fun things, from jewelry to school supplies to toys.
Clarice was in the Christmas spirit really early this year.
Alex, Clarice, & Karlie (Clarice's friend) unload shoeboxes at the local drop-off center.
And here's a short message from the gang.
