     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 experience "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."
