Raider Football players pitch in for Operation Christmas child

By Duane Bonifer, Director of Public Relations
News from Lindsey Wilson College

Members of the Lindsey Wilson College football team put good use to their used shoe boxes after Tuesday afternoons practice at Blue Raider Stadium. The Blue Raiders donated their shoe boxes to a freshman seminars Operation Christmas Child. More than 90 were collected.

Operation Christmas Child is a global Christmas gift exchange project operated by Samaritans Purse, a non-denominational evangelical Christian humanitarian organization. Later this semester, LWC freshmen will stuff the shoe boxes with toys, school supplies and personal hygiene items, and they will ship them to disadvantaged children around the world.

The LWC effort is being coordinator by Freshman Advisor Ben Martin.
