This year we’re sharing this local charity organization called “Gifts for Kids” –
Here is what they have to say:
The Group’s Purpose
Gifts for Kids (working for Operation Christmas Child Nanaimo) has formed in order to be able to reach out and help as many children as we can with a simple gift that can bring joy and hope and change their lives, and often that of their family and community too.
Although we are independent, we are affiliated with and completely support the work of Operation Christmas Child and Samaritan’s Purse.
Throughout the year we aim to bring awareness to this great opportunity to bless the less fortunate children of our world by reminding people of the need and encouraging the filling of shoeboxes year-round.
We fundraise locally to be able to support what we are doing and we are always looking for volunteers and helpers. There is always a need.

Each of us is totally dedicated to seeing this work expand and the number of Christmas Shoeboxes increase by leaps and bounds.
