LifeSpring Church participates annually in a program called Operation Christmas Child (OCC). This program is sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse, and its purpose is to put shoeboxes filled with practical gifts into the hands of children in third world countries. In 2015 over 10 million boxes were sent to children in 109 countries.
Boxes contain things such as small toys, toothbrushes, combs, wash cloths, socks, and other gifts a child would enjoy receiving. To watch a video about packing your shoebox, go to this link.
LifeSpring considers OCC to be a program of great value and has participated in it since 2007.
