Heartland gives back for Christmas
For many, Christmas is a joy-filled time of year for celebrating and giving back to family, friends and the community. To ensure as many as possible enjoyed Christmas this year, Heartland decided to get involved with Operation Christmas Child.
A project of non-profit organisation Samaritan Purse, Operation Christmas Child provides gift-filled shoe boxes to children in developing nations between the ages of 2 to 14 years. For some, this may be the only gift they ever receive. At Heartland, we were pleased to pack and send away 19 shoes boxes for children in the Philippines, and we couldn’t be happier knowing there will be a few more smiles this Christmas! There is also a range of other initiatives that take place year-round with Samaritan Purse, which provides emergency relief and development assistance to suffering people around the world.
