A gift packing event called Operation: Christmas Child was held on November 17th at St. Thomas Church. Volunteers walked around tables with different presents for children and filled their boxes with items for specific aged and gendered children. The event, which was run by Julie Bailey, was a huge success. It took about an hour to pack the boxes with toys, toothbrushes, soap, shirts,  books and more until the presents ran out, and afterwards volunteers were treated to Chick-Fil-A. Volunteers consisted of Manassas citizens and Osbourn students from organizations such as Key Club and Community Action Athletes.
