Press release

Dawn Camic, a community contact for the Heart of Kentucky team with Operation Christmas Child (OCC), was the speaker at Kiwanis Club of Danville on Thursday, April 19.

Dawn shared with the Kiwanis that in addition to working through many area churches, OCC is now engaging more actively with other groups, like Kiwanis International, to reach children.

When a child receives a shoebox gift through OCC, not only do they receive a mixture of helpful and fun gifts, handpicked by folks just like us, but they also begin the path to hearing about Jesus. Millions of boys and girls have the opportunity to learn more about Christ’s gift of salvation and what it means to follow him through The Greatest Journey, the follow-up discipleship program that Samaritan’s Purse, the parent organization of OCC, developed for shoebox recipients.
