Samaritan's Purse donations down

The local project to fill shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child yielded only 35 boxes to be sent to children who are otherwise forgotten - a substantial decrease from the 71 sent out last year. The chairman would like to thank the local youth group who filled two for their first year, and one other lady who filled 20 on her own. Everyone is thanked for filling the boxes for the kids which get shipped to countries all over the world including here in the U.S. every box that was filled will bring a smile to a child's face!

Those readers would like to help, may still do so for future shipping. Watch for the store sales right after Christmas, then pick up small items and put them aside. Then when school supplies go on sale get some of those for your boxes. It won't take long to fill a box or two. Fore details, call Gail at 623-2335.
