Kirby Pines Gives BIG to Operation Christmas Child

Kirby Pines residents and Retirement Companies of America, LLC have contributed a total of $9,050.00 to Samaritan’s Purse for “Operation Christmas Child.” This money will be used to purchase shoeboxes filled with Christmas gifts which will be distributed to children around the world in over 150 different countries. For many children, this will be the first Christmas gift they have ever received. Samaritan’s Purse is a part of the Rev. Franklin Graham ministry located in Boone, North Carolina. This is the 6th consecutive year that Kirby Pines residents have participated. In October, a challenge was presented to our residents that we raise $8,750 to purchase 350 shoeboxes. Our residents gave so generously that we exceeded our goal by $300. With the amount raised this year, we will be able to purchase a total of 362 shoeboxes. Thank you Kirby Pines Residents and RCA for making this happen!
