SAMARITAN’S Purse is appealing for Vale residents to bring joy and hope to millions as part of this year’s Operation Christmas Child appeal.
The organisation has delivered more than100 million gift-filled shoeboxes to disadvantaged children in more than 100 countries.
Ted Bird, Samaritan’s Purse area coordinator for Cardiff, South Glamorgan and Vale of Glamorgan, said: “Getting involved in Operation Christmas Child, wrapping and packing shoeboxes can be such fun and is always hugely rewarding. Every year we see people organising their work colleagues, teachers working with parents and schoolchildren and churches inviting their communities to get involved.
“These children are always so thankful to know that someone on the other side of the world cares about them.”
Shoeboxes can be dropped off at Shoe Zone, on Holton Road, Barry.
