The River have filled shoeboxes as part of the Samaritan's Purse Shoebox campaign for years, so are happy to announce that we have another church in Squamish who will also be taking part. Great to have The Rock join the local effort to help those in need globally.
If you are not familiar with the shoeboxes please visit: https://www.samaritanspurse.ca/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/
We have teamed up with The Ledge in downtown Squamish to act as a pick-up and collection point. Collection week, when shoeboxes need to be dropped off is November 16th-22nd. So anyone that plans to pack one will need to drop them off at The Ledge that week, or before.
If you would like to be part of this great opportunity to care for the less fortunate worldwide, please talk to Pastors Darcy or Kenda to get a box and label. The boxes will also be available to the public at The Ledge during their opening hours.
If you know anyone that might like to volunteer to help coordinate boxes, or you would like to be involved in a bigger way, you can sign up here: https://therocksquamish.churchcenter.com/groups/servant-teams/operation-christmas-child-team?fbclid=IwAR0UJxcyeHQ5wx_PUG4rt-sXLfP2qf-2xz0dLTzRj2hUqAPE1BynwbPWAXo
