On November 15th the Residents along with boy scouts and girl scouts from Villa Maria Academy School participated in Operation Christmas Child. Operation Christmas child is sponsored by Samaritans Purse.
Together, they were able to stuff 62 shoe boxes of various items to send to needy children all over the world. The children, along with their troop leaders helped our residents fill the boxes, sing songs and enjoy each other’s company. This was a project that will now be an annual tradition for our home.
Pictured is Theresa O’Hara (Resident) with her daughter Maryann (organizer of Operation Christmas Child) and her granddaughter Maeve.
Maeve has been packing boxes for Operation Christmas for a few years with her family and thought it would be a nice idea to have her grandmother and friends help her brownie troop put them together.
