Okay, so what do these three have in common:
Uncle Si from Duck Dynasty
A Methodist Church in Northeast England
A child in an state-run orphanage in the Ukraine
It is quite simple: Samaritan’s Purse. Uncle Si has gotten behind this great program. You can see more about it here. At Carrville Methodist Church, we dropped off our boxes to be collected by Samaritan’s Purse volunteers. We found out that our boxes are likely to head to orphanages in the Ukraine.
Samaritan’s Purse is involved in the relief efforts after the tornadoes of Oklahoma, Texas, and Tuscaloosa, Alabama. They were a part of the work following the earthquake in Haiti and the tsunami in Japan. They are at work in the Sudan and the Philippines.
While these are all important projects, there are still needs around the world. Children are still in need in ongoing situations on every continents. It is so very simple to get involved. Our family had a great time shopping for the items and filling the boxes. Why don’t you give it a go too? Check out this link to the videos to learn more.
