Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child

The New Jersey Latvian School has for a second year, led by religion teacher Aldis Jatnieks, participated in the work of the charity Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child. The charity sends Christmas gift boxes to needy children around the world, including Latvia. The boxes include toys, hygiene supplies, and a brief letter from the senders. The New Jersey School parents’ donate the items which the teachers and children pack into the boxes. This year the parents, teachers and children prepared over 30 boxes. This project has been going on for years and Samaritan’s Purse anticipates sending 100,000,000 boxes this Christmas. Latvia has over the years received over 600,000 boxes. One of the families in the school recalls receiving a gift box from Samaritan’s Purse when they still lived in Latvia. How lovely that we can join in the work of an organization whose goals are so close to our hearts!
