This is the week to turn in filled shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child. Local Coordinator Heather Lowe says they can be dropped off downstairs at the Lutheran Church. She says they will be there Thursday from 5 to 8, Friday from 5 to 8, Saturday from 1 to 5 and then Sunday evening they will be there at 7 o’clock for their final gathering of boxes and their video night and again this year Pharmasave will be collecting boxes for them up until the 22nd.
Lowe says you can still donate items in a shoe box you have or a plastic container the size of a shoe box. They will be delivered to countries where there is war, natural disasters or famine.
