Operation Christmas Child 2019 was another year of success. A big round of thanks goes to June Sweitzer, Kathy Riordan, and Dona Myers for their leadership. Of course we send thanks to each of you who helped with sewing, crafting, buying, praying. donating money, and packing boxes. Our crafting/sewing group packed 53 And as a church we packed 128 boxes.
Dona Myers said this year’s boxes were bigger, heavier, and better packed. It was evident that “great effort [was] put forth for which we are very grateful.”
