At Christmas time, it can be humbling to notice how many children in the world will go without food or clothing, let alone a gift.
This year Northpointe is excited to be participating in Operation Christmas Child.
Operation Christmas Child is part of Samaritan’s Purse, a non-profit, non-denominational Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. With a little help from each Northpointe family we can help children all over the world have a better Christmas.
There are 2 ways you can participate:
- Donate an item or two from the list below (also available in the office or on the front table). We also need cash donations for shipping (each box is $7.00).
- Check out a box for your family to fill from the office.
All donations need to be returned by October 31st.
Please join us in giving children around the world a box full of joy for Christmas.
