Operation Christmas Child has wrapped up in the Flin Flon Creighton area. It’s a program to collect shoe boxes filled with gifts and other items for needy children around the world. The program was coordinated by the Baptist Church and their Pastor Jim Galbraith says it went fantastic this year. He says they got 307 last year and this year they brought in 319 boxes from around the community so he’d like to thank the community, individuals and corporations and businesses that all helped out in making this their best Operation Christmas Child drive yet.
Galbraith says the boxes were sent to Calgary for processing and will then be sent on to the children.
