NOVEMBER 17-24: WORLD’S LARGEST CHRISTMAS PROJECT OPENS COLLECTION SITES IN CUMBERLAND COUNTY: two locations in Cumberland County will serve as collection sites for Operation Christmas Child—the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind. The annual project is a favorite of many local residents, families, churches and groups, who help spread joy to millions of children around the world by filling shoeboxes with toys, school supplies and notes of encouragement. “Anyone can participate,” said Crossville, TN volunteer Anita Smith. “Operation Christmas Child is a simple project that makes a tangible difference in the life of a child facing difficult circumstances like war, poverty or famine. Through local collection points, Cumberland County residents expect to contribute more than 3,500 gift-filled shoeboxes to the 2014 global goal of reaching 10 million children in need as part of the Upper Cumberland Area Team comprising 16 counties, including Cumberland, Clay, Smith, Warren, DeKalb, Jackson, Fentress, White, Van Buren, Macon, Morgan, Pickett, Putnam, Bledsoe, Overton, and Trousdale. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has delivered gift-filled shoeboxes to more than 113 million children in more than 150 countries. For many of these children, a gift-filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received. Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international Christian relief and evangelism organization headed by Franklin Graham. Through simple gifts and a message of hope through Jesus Christ, children learn they are loved and not forgotten.
