OUR FAVOURITE TIME OF YEAR
The Shoebox season is short and intense but we love it. At SAC, we are the Central Drop Off Location for Surrey/Langley/North Delta/White Rock and have the privilege of collecting shoeboxes from other churches in our area. The boxes are shipped to the Processing Centre in Calgary and then sent out to children around the world. For more information about the Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes, please start here: https://www.samaritanspurse.ca/the-journey-of-a-shoebox/
