Operation Christmas Child is again underway in the Flin Flon area. Local Coordinator Heather Lowe is asking you to fill shoe boxes with items to be delivered to children in countries where there is war, natural disasters and famine. She says they are looking for toys, school supplies, things like soap and tooth brushes but not toothpaste, anything that a little child would like. She says they would suggest that you do not include any type of candy or war toys or anything that would be scary to a child.
French adds they only have a small supply of boxes on hand so they recommend you use a shoe box you have or a plastic container the size of a shoe box. You can drop boxes off at Pharmasave or downstairs at the Lutheran Church November 19th and 20th from 5 to 8, the 21st from 1 to 5 and on Sunday the 22nd at 7 they will have a video and the final count of boxes.
