This month, Paul Hickson (Builder) Pty Ltd got down and dirty in the shed packing shoeboxes as part of Operation Christmas Child.

Operation Christmas Child is a unique project of Samaritan’s Purse that brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoe boxes, It provides an opportunity for people of all ages to be involved in a simple but hands-on project that has the power to transform children’s lives. In 2010, over 305,000 gift-filled shoe boxes from Australia were delivered to South East Asia and the South Pacific. As each shoe box gift is delivered, it is treasured by the child that receives it, and is a lasting reminder that he or she is precious to God.
