Operation Christmas Child 2023—Thank You, Robson Ranch!

Steve Bishop

On Nov. 13 and 14, 2023, Robson Ranch residents participated in Samaritan’s Purse annual collection week. On Nov. 13, about 60 people met in the Hermosa Ballroom and constructed more than 2,000 shoe boxes and set up the room for the annual Packing Party. On the morning of Nov. 14, nearly 100 residents energetically worked to fill those boxes. Starting at 9:30 a.m., the boxes were filled by 12:45 p.m., placed in master packs of 16 boxes each, and loaded into a truck for transport to the regional collection center in Chandler where the master packs were put into semitrucks.

Totals for this year:

Packing Party: 2,050

Independent packing: 136

Grand total: 2,186

Thank you Robson Ranch for supporting this ministry with your energetic and loving help at the events, packing individual boxes, and financial support. More than 11 million boxes will be distributed this year to children all over the world. For many, it will be the first real gift they have ever received. Plus each child will be able to choose to take part in a class called the Greatest Journey, which will explain the Gospel to them in 12 lessons. Your loving support will have a great impact on these young lives.

Again, thank you!
