As part of an annual tradition, Carroll Lutheran School students from Westminster, packed 91 shoe boxes filled with school supplies, personal hygiene items and small gifts. The boxes were donated in November to Operation Christmas Child through Samaritan’s Purse Ministry.
Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in more than 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoe box gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan’s Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. For the past 12 years Operation Christmas Child has been a way for Carroll Lutheran School students to reach beyond the local community and share the love of Christ.
Carroll Lutheran School is a private Christian school serving students in kindergarten through eighth grade from families across the County and Pennsylvania. Families looking for a quality education in a faith-based environment are encouraged to visit the school located at 1738 Old Taneytown Road in Westminster.
