FEA held their annual Operation Christmas child, Monday, Nov. 28  The group met and filled 28 shoe boxes with toys for boys and girls across the world.

“It’s fun giving back to people, especially to children,” senior Taylor Sellers said.  As Americans we tend to  take things for granted.

The shoes boxes were sponsored by Samaritan Purse, an evangelical Christian humanitarian aid organization. Recently the group was notified that the first set of boxes reached Finland.

“I feel like every kid deserves to have a great Christmas and I hope they really enjoy the things we wrapped for them,” Dakota Dubose said.  

The purpose of the annual event is to provide children with gifts for Christmas with a special message.

“It is a wonderful feeling giving someone a gift and getting the chance to tell them about Jesus,” Dawn Cabrera said.
