Operation Christmas Child wrapped up in the Flin Flon Creighton area Sunday. It’s a program to collect shoe boxes filled with gifts and other items for needy children around the world. Local Coordinator Heather French says boxes were packed Sunday and shipped to Calgary. She says it went very well with 237 boxes sent out and they will be going to countries such as Paraguay, Papua New Guinea, Venezuela and other South American countries.
French says they did better than last year when they collected just over 200 boxes.
