Operation Christmas Child is again under way in the Flin Flon area. The Baptist Church is the collection center and their Pastor Jim Galbraith is asking you to fill shoe boxes to be delivered to children in countries where there is war, natural disasters and famine. He says the kind of things that really last are the sturdy toys like your match box toys made of metal or even just a nice sized rubber ball or baseball and nothing used. He adds the kids love to get school supplies and hygiene items like tooth brushes, combs or a nice face cloth and activity books.
Galbraith adds boxes can be picked up at Pharmasave, Dollar Store With More or participating churches, filled and returned to those locations. The deadline is November 20th.
