Bacon County FCCLA has participated in Operation Christmas Child for the 2nd year in a row. We have learned that is much more than just a box filled with items! After having another experience the Operation Christmas Child Processing Center we have realized it is more than “just a box”. This year, the leader at our packing station was the same one will helped deliver the boxes to a small village in Africa. This was our first time actually having first-hand experience from someone that helps place these precious boxes into the hands of children. Byy her sharing her experiences, it made it feel as if we were there passing those boxes out to the children. With this experience, we all decided this is a community service project that we will continue to participate in even after graduation and maybe, just maybe, actually experience one day traveling to a foreign country and placing those boxes in their hands ourselves!
