The American Heritage Girls Troop SC 1603 and Victory Baptist Church are working to ship 100 Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes this fall.
They began this project in May with a goal to fill 100 shoeboxes with 100 bibles. A goal was set to raise $700 shipping to get them in the children’s hands.
The girls are also collecting 100 painted handprints with a verse that reads. “Put your hand in mine and let us pray together.”
In June they held a Community Day and thanks to the help of Victory Baptist Church and the community they raised the rest of what they needed to ship the boxes.
They are still in need of the following items: reusable water bottles, fishing supplies, hooks, bobbers and fishing line. sewing supplies, needles, thread, buttons, trimmings, kids’ socks and wash clothes.
They are also in need of a carpenter to assist. as well as spare wood and golf tees.
AGH is taking new girls in for the new school years ages 5-14. Please contact April Elswick at 843-367-9659 for more information.
