    Sorority helps with Operation Christmas Child

    Members of the Oak Ridge Alumnae Chapter (ORAC) of Delta Sigma Theta
    Sorority, Inc. helped spread the Christmas spirit by helping with Samaritan's
    nurse's annual Operation Christmas Child drive to fulfill the sorority's service
    requirements in International Awareness and Involvement, a part of the
    sorority's five programmatic thrusts.  

    Samaritan's Purse, a nondenominational, Christan nonprofit organization aims to provide spiritual and physical aid
    those in need.  Samaritan's Purses's annual Operation Christmas Child event collects and packs shoeboxes filled
    with gifts from churches, families and individuals for children around the globe. Once the boxes are collected and
    filled, they are carefully shipped off to a variety of different countries where volunteers distribute them with love
    and the story of the Gospel.

    Members of the Oak Ridge Alumnae Chapter devoted two days to assist with the Operation Christmas Child drive.  
    On a Friday, several   members purchased, separated, and grouped items, then packages these items in preparation
    for the next step -- filling the shoe-boxes.

    On Saturday, ORAC sorority members filled shoeboxes bulging at the seams with items and sealed them.  
    Oak Ridge Alumnae Chapter President Lori Whipple reflected on the chapter's Operation Christmas Child
    experienc "What a blessing it was to package those boxes, though we may not see the joy they bring, we savor the
    privilege to help and give."
