We would like to pass on a very special thank you to the staff, students and community members that participated in the Operation Christmas Child Shoebox drive this November. We were saw fewer boxes come in, but the quality of the boxes was amazing! Our total was 38 with some of our participants filling special boxes bound for the Ukraine, while others filled warm climate boxes that will be delivered to Central American countries.
Special thanks to: Dakota Havener, Kayley Quinney-Cardinal, Brandon Goertzen, Vicki Brooker, John Braga and Kale Thornton, Loughran family, Ramsey Mudryk, Taneya Mahe, Kolbie Poitras, Hannah Ganske, Jacula family, Michael Waboose, Hayley Vinge, Wood family, Angela Lowry, Paige Skarsen, Dave Shankowski, Bjorkman family, Elaine Bjorkman, Gloria Lecopoy, Kathy Berlinguette, and Melissa Petruk.
We are so pleased to partner with the Elk Point Baptist Church (our collection center) and the Elk Point Elementary School’s Mrs. Dewan who delivered our boxes to the church on time! It is through this co-operation that the we deliver the spirit of Christmas to those that need it most.
Thirty eight smiling faces will enjoy our generosity this holiday season. We hope each and everyone one of our donors receives a joy equal to the joy he/she has brought their Christmas Child this Christmas.
