Roberta participates in Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child every year. We pack the shoe boxes with toys, games, school supplies, etc. for children around the world who otherwise would have nothing for Christmas. But more importantly they learn about Jesus.
In the past we have been able to include hard candy and toothpaste. That is no longer permitted.
This notice is on the Samaritan’s Purse web site: Do Not Include
Candy; toothpaste; used or damaged items; war-related items such as toy guns, knives, or military figures; chocolate or food; seeds; fruit rolls or other fruit snacks; drink mixes (powdered or liquid); liquids or lotions; medications or vitamins; breakable items such as snow globes or glass containers; aerosol cans.
We will be ringing the bells for the Salvation Army again this year. We will do it for two days. It was a great success last year and we sure would appreciate the volunteers again this year. Please sign up on the sheet being passed around.
Giving Tree collects money and needed items for many local charities as well as our Golden Seniors.
