For years VICKI STAMPS has been intimately involved in the packing of “Operation Christmas Child” shoeboxes of love gifts to needy children around the world.
She began before her daughter started school. Her daughter is now a married adult.
Vicki is now “Regional Area Coordinator of Operation Christmas Child,” leading many wonderful churches and volunteers expressing their love for God and serving Him through OCC!
The scriptural basis for their actions is Matthew 25: 31 – 46, Mark 12:28 – 31, and Mark 10:43 – 45.
She reminds us that “Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes of love gifts for needy children worldwide is always the third week in November.”
Vicki shares these wonderful numbers:
In the year of covid in 2020, 9,000 shoeboxes were packed and delivered!
The 2021 goal is for 9,500 shoeboxes.
Since 1993, OCC beginning, 188,000,000 (million) shoeboxes of love gifts to needy children have been packed and delivered!
