      Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Their mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. They ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.

Operation Christmas Child is not just a seasonal ministry at Dawsey! While we will accept any of the items at anytime during the year, as a church family we focus on this collection during October, November, and December.  Due to the worldwide pandemic, the needs were even greater this year.  Dawsey packed about 40 boxes for this great ministry!


During the summer we collected items for the House of Hope in Florence and delivered them to the folks there.  

Dawsey also regularly supports other local places including Heritage Home of Florence, McLeod Hospice, McLeod Guest House and The Manor.
