Samaritans Purse Shoebox Appeal
Operation Christmas Child is a unique project of Samaritans Purse Australasia-Operation Christmas Child Limited that brings Good News and Great Joy to kids in need through a simple shoebox filled with gifts.
Globally, more than 100 million shoeboxes have been given to kids in need in more than 130 countries since 1993.
Each year, members of Booragoon Lions Club prepare approximately 30=40 shoeboxes for the Shoebox Appeal. Empty shoeboxes are filled with useful items including writing and drawing items, toothbrush, comb, toy, soap, clothing, hat and other essential gifts.
