Students will participate again this year in Operation Christmas Child. It is the largest event of its kind, providing Christmas gifts to children around the world.
Last year we collected over 300 boxes filled with Christmas joy. This year we are asking each family to participate by giving one shoebox filled with toys, clothes, toothbrushes, etc. Of course, you may also do more than one box. Please contact the office for more information and a brochure you will need to help you pack your shoebox.
