10 Boxes Filled with Toys & Supplies Sent to Peru

Nov 25, 2023

This year we contributed more than 130 toys and supplies to Operation Christmas Child, an initiative by Samaritan’s Purse. Samaritan’s Purse is dedicated to providing humanitarian aid to those in need, all while spreading the message of hope found in the Gospel. Our donation, packed into 10 boxes, made its way to children in Peru who are facing hardships.

Each box was packed full with a variety of toys & supplies including:

Beanie Babies, Hot Wheels Cars, Harmonicas, Slinkies, Pop-Its, Action Figures, Glitter & Twist Crayons, Markers, Pencils, Pencil Sharpeners, Coloring & Activity Books, Backpacks, Socks, Hair Ties, Band-Aids, Toothbrushes, Combs, Soap, & Colored Yarn

We dropped off our boxes at Northside Church in Tampa, where they’ll be prepared for shipping to Peru.

Peru, positioned along South America’s western coast, showcases a variety of landscapes, from the Amazon rainforest to the majestic Andes mountains. Notably, it’s home to the historic Incan site of Machu Picchu, a popular tourist destination. Samaritan’s Purse began distributing gift-filled shoeboxes in Peru in 1997 and remains committed to aiding the country’s communities.

We want to thank everyone who donated their time & resources to this year’s donation!
