We all have an opportunity to make a difference – especially children in very poor communities who are affected by poverty, natural disasters and COVID-19.
What is Operation Christmas Child?
Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is a project of Samaritan’s Purse. It partners with local churches in developing nations to reach out to children by providing gift-filled shoe boxes and bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Two Waterford hours per shoe box of gifts for children.
For More Information
Please see Mr Dell for more information and to collect your shoe boxes
The virtual simulation of a homeless sleepout is another opportunity for Waterford Hours. A $10 donation to Coast Shelter Gosford and participating in the sleepout will earn 10 Waterford hours.
