Operation Christmas Child is Underway in Johnson City

When I was 13-years-old, I decided that I wanted to do something to help make a difference in the lives of other kids my age, and so I teamed up with an organization called 'Samaritan's Purse' and was part of their inaugural shoe-box mission, a mission to touch lives, which continues to this day.
