In November, our Lewisville students and staff participated in Operation Christmas Child, sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse International. Students brought their purchased donations to fill shoeboxes for their adopted children. Samaritan’s Purse and Operation Christmas Child demonstrates God’s love to hurting children in a tangible way, by partnering with churches worldwide to deliver gift- filled shoeboxes and the Good News of Jesus Christ. Thank you to the families who chose to fill your own shoebox for a needy child, filled with items for school supplies, hygiene products, and a small toy.

On December 12th, 20 WBAL students and staff will spend the afternoon volunteering at the Samaritan’s Purse local distribution center preparing and packaging the donated Christmas Child shoeboxes from the DFW metroplex for shipment around the world. We still have a few spots open if you would like to join us for this very worthwhile community service project. Call our office to reserve your place.

This month our National Honor Society students are also sponsoring a Holiday Food Drive. We will be collecting donations for a local metroplex food bank to provide Christmas dinner for at least six qualified needy families until Friday, December 13th.

A list of items still needed is included with this mailing. Please consider donating to this worthwhile project. We believe it is important to encourage our students to “give back” to their community as part of our mission to enable them to Master Learning, Master Life.
