Operation Christmas Child
Another reason I was so lax in blogging is that my room became grand central for Operation Christmas Child, a non-profit group that sends shoeboxes full of items to under-priveledged kids around the world.
It all started when one of my students – Susie, came up to me and asked if I would approach the staff about taking on this project throughout the school. Of course the teachers were more than happy to participate and each room was given a shoebox to fill, our goal was to fill 13 shoeboxes – one for each room.
Well we had great support with this charitable event and ended up filling 50 boxes! Wow!!!! The boxes were picked up by a mom and taken to the local high school.
Susie and I could not believe the support that we received from the community. Not only did we fill 50 boxes, but we also raised over $180.00 to help pay for the postage of sending the boxes overseas.
Was there something that your school did to help with charity?
