ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Wellman

Volunteers from the Big River Iowa Area Team collected over 8,000 gift-filled shoeboxes for children in need around the world this holiday season.

The Big River Iowa Area Team is now thanking the Wellman communitiy’s generous contributions are already on their way to children in need worldwide. For many of these children, the shoebox gift will be the first gift they ever receive.

Although collections have finished for the season, there is still time to pack a shoebox gift online for children affected by war, disease, disaster, poverty and famine. Those who prefer the convenience of online shopping can browse samaritanspurse.org/buildonline to select gifts matched to a child’s specific age and gender, then finish packing the virtual shoebox by adding a photo and personal note of encouragement.

For more information on how to participate in Operation Christmas Child or to view gift suggestions, call 612-369-7025 or visit samaritanspurse.org/occ.
