Building Blocks for Tots Child Care Center Director Connie Carter-Holt and teacher Amanda Webb are pictured with some of the 117 shoeboxes the child care center packed for Operation Christmas Child, a ministry of Samaritan's Purse. Organizers said the project began in August with a school supply collection and Building Blocks for Tots classes began a study of children around the world, their various cultures and their needs. Each month, children brought items to be packed in November. Shoeboxes contain a toothbrush, soap, wash clothes, school supplies, hats, gloves, socks and toys. Children wrote letters to include with the boxes and joined in a class prayer for the children receiving the boxes. At least one box is tracked so the children can follow along on the classroom maps and see where their boxes were delivered.
