This past week, the Rotary Club of Kerrville - Morning (Morning Rotary) was joined by Past District 5840 Governor Jan Livingston who helped the club members pack shoe boxes with Christmas gifts for boys and girls.
The boxes were filled with fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies. The shoebox program is an outreach of Samaritan’s Purse, Operation Christmas Child.
“The Samaritan’s Purse shoebox project really puts things into perspective for our members around the holidays. We have a great time collecting the gifts and creatively ‘stuffing’ them in the small shoeboxes. What I think we appreciate most though, is the simple reality check that these small gifts, like a toothbrush, pair of socks, and a box of LEGOs, will make a world of difference for the less-fortunate kiddos who receive these boxes. Our lives in Kerrville, Texas are blessed, and this project allows us to pay it forward,” said Morning Rotary President, Jon Tilley.
