Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child in Rockwall, TX

September 22nd, 2021 by

Please partner up with us at Toyota of Rockwall as we launch off Operation Christmas Child. This project is part of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Samaritan’s Purse provides local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. They ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease, and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.

Our mission at Toyota of Rockwall is to collect items on a bi-monthly schedule to fill as many shoeboxes as possible before National Collection Weeks begins November 16th – 23rd. The collection of items will be based on gift ideas suggested items by Samaritan’s Purse. Our drive begins the week of September 13-26 and ends the week of November 16th – 23rd. Items being collected are for Boys and Girls age groups 2nd – 4th, 5th – 9th, and 10th – 14th. See the schedule below for giving opportunities.

COME and be a part of a child receiving a gift for the first time in their lives by picking up and packing your own Operation Christmas Child shoebox at Toyota of Rockwall located at 1250 E I-30, Rockwall, TX. For your convenience, Toyota of Rockwall will deliver all packed and returned shoeboxes to the local drop-off location during National Collection Week.
