Merry Christmas America – 2002

By , October 18, 2002

Since January 2002, Operation Compassion has been procuring stocking stuffers, toys, books, clothing and school supplies for the Christmas season. Most recently food, cookies, candy and beverages have been procured from across the country. All of these products will serve as the basis for Operation Compassion’s Merry Christmas America – 2002.

During the next ten weeks, Operation Compassion will have its fleet of semi trucks criss-crossing the highways of the United States delivering Christmas to underprivileged families. Churches or agencies wanting to make a difference in their communities have locally sponsored each semi truck. Sponsorships are still available for $4,000 east of the Mississippi River and $5,000 west of the Mississippi River.

Each semi contains the following components:

  1. 384 Food Boxes: canned goods and staple foods to feed an average family (each box to be assembled by donors)
  2. Snack items for party: Beverages, candy, cookies and chips
  3. Stocking Stuffers: 5 stocking stuffers for 1,200 children (assortment of Disney CDs; Garden Babies; McDonald’s Videos; Burger King Batman; Long John Silver Lost in Space; Rug Rat Cassette Tapes)
  4. Toys: 4 26” Roadmaster Bicycles ($200 value) and 300 Assorted Ty Animals ($25 value)
  5. Clothing, Books or School Supplies – in combination as Donor’s choice

Operation Compassion has set a goal of providing 100,000 children and their families a Merry Christmas filled with cheer and happiness.
