Event Details

Many families in Northwestern New Jersey have been very involved for years in packing gift-filled shoeboxes for children in need around the world through Operations Christmas Child. In fact, over 13,000 shoeboxes were collected last year in this area. Northwestern New Jersey area team volunteers invite you to an Applebee’s Flapjack Fundraiser breakfast on Saturday, October 7th from 8:00 am to 10:00 am in benefit of Operation Christmas Child. Proceeds from the Flapjack Fundraiser breakfast will go to Operation Christmas Child to help with the cost of shipping the millions of shoeboxes that will be collected this year. The cost for breakfast will be $10 ($5 for children 10 years of age and younger). Tickets can be purchased at the door, or ordered at 973.670.8091 or jdrew@juno.com. Applebee’s location is 6 North Park Drive Newton, New Jersey 07860.

Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan’s Purse, collects shoebox gifts—filled with school supplies, hygiene items, and fun toys—and delivers them to children in need around the world to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way. For many of these children, the gift-filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received. In 2017, Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, hopes to collect enough shoebox gifts to reach another 12 million children in more than 100 countries. National Collection Week is November 13 to November 20, 2017!
