Operation Christmas Child. November 2011
Portacover are happy to assist Operation Christmas Child in the valuable work they do, in making children smile at Christmas all over the world. Operation Christmas Child is the world's largest children's Christmas project, run by the Christian charity Samaritan's Purse. We have been sending gift-filled shoeboxes around the world since 1990, bringing joy into the lives of over 80 million under privileged children.
Last year, over 500,000 people from across the UK and Ireland got involved - including many churches, schools and workplaces. Children and adults alike wrapped and packed around 1.12 million shoeboxes full of gifts and goodies, which were then sent to disadvantaged children across Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
