New Operation Christmas Child Team Members

Operation Christmas ChildTeam members have been added to the Russell area year-round volunteers for Operation Christmas Child, a mission of Samaritan's Purse.

Sheryl Turner is a Community Relations Team Member. Ian Finger is a Student Relations Team Member. They join LuAnn Walters, a Church Relations Team Member, and longtime year-round volunteer Alice Hammack, who has recently accepted the position of Area Community Relations Coordinator. In addition to working with the Russell County Team Members, Hammack will work with other community year-round volunteers in North Central Kansas.

By serving year-round with Samaritan's Purse through Operation Christmas Child, each volunteer will be a part of proclaiming the Gospel in more than 100 countries around the world. In 2017, Russell County packed 1,846 shoe boxes. Each shoe box gift can bring Good News and great joy to a child in need and their family.

Shoe Box Collection Week is November 12-19, 2018. The Russell area's collection site is Otterbein United Methodist Church in Russell. For more information on Operation Christmas Child, see https://www.samaritanspurse.org/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child.
