Operation Christmas Child has some new, smiling helpers!

On Monday the Yavapai Volleyball team joined with Project Christmas Child to prepare packages that will be sent to children all over the world. Operation Christmas Child is part of an international relief organization called Samaritan’s Purse which was founded by Franklin Graham. 

Ruthie Claybaugh of Prescott is the leader of the local division of Operation Christmas Child. Ruthie along with some help from friends at Solid Rock Christian Fellowship, filled over 500 shoebox gifts for children around the world. Each box contains school and art supplies, a stuffed animal, toiletries, toys, clothing items, flip-flops, candy, a book and other surprises.

On Monday the Roughrider Volleyball Team chipped in to help Penny Nicholas, Beverly Anthony, and Loretta Carter wrap over 60 boxes and assemble over 100 coloring books. We encourage everyone to get involved and help those in need.
