SHOEBOXES

The Christian Youth Club at Salyersville Grade School have been busy making sure children from around the world have a better Christmas. CYC members spearheaded a drive to collect shoeboxes for Samaritan’s Purse. Shoeboxes are filled with toys, small games, candy, and/or personal supplies.  These shoeboxes are sent throughout the world.
  Samaritan’s Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God’s love. 
    Some CYC members are pictured above with 49 shoeboxes that were collected during the drive.
