Operation Christmas Child

Now that fall is officially here, it’s time to start thinking about the holidays. This year ACA will participate in Operation Christmas Child! For those of you who haven’t heard of it, every year thousands of shoe boxes, filled with gifts and a story about God and His love, are shipped across the world to kids in need to help bring joy and spread the word of Jesus. We will be asking each child to donate a box. We feel each child should learn the gift of giving as well as receiving and this is certainly an opportunity to do so. Getting Started: 1. Use a standard size shoe box or small plastic container. 2. Determine what age and sex of the child: 2-4, 5-9 or 10-14 3. Fill with gifts: Please also include a note to the child and a photo or your family. If you include your name and address the child may write back. Some suggestions: school supplies: pens, pencils, stacking cialis and viagra sharpeners, crayons, markers, stamps and stamp pads, writing paper, solar calculators, coloring & picture books. Toys small cars, balls, dolls, stuffed animals, etch a sketch, jump ropes, harmonicas, kazoos, toys that light up or make noise with extra batteries, slinky, etc. Hygiene Items: toothbrush, toothpaste, mild bar soap in a plastic bag, comb, washcloth. Other: T-shirts, socks, ball caps, sunglasses, hair clips, toy jewelry, watches, flashlights with extra batteries.

Why our Parents Love ACA:

Click Here to Read what some of our parents have to say about ACA.
“What we like best about A Child’s Academy is how the teachers at ACA are so friendly. They know how to take care of kids. Our daughters favorite part of the day is playing at the playground with the huge fantasy castle. My wife and I feel the greatest benefits for us have been allowing us to concentrate on work because we know Jennifer is in a good, safe, learning environment. I would want new parents to know how safe A Child’s Academy is and how much their children will and enjoy it and learn.”
