Letters to the Editor

Letter: Gift-giving continues

To the Editor:

I’m writing to thank St. Charles residents for their generosity in helping thousands of suffering children worldwide this past Christmas. Through their efforts, we were able to collect 3,360 shoe boxes – filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items – for Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind. These simple, gift-filled shoe boxes communicate to needy children that they are loved and not forgotten.

Although drop-off locations in St. Charles are closed until November 2014, shoe box gifts can be packed any time. Gifts are received year-round at Samaritan’s Purse, 801 Bamboo Road, Boone, N.C. 28607; or using the project’s online tool, where donors can virtually build a box. To get involved, visit samaritanspurse.org or call 612-359-7025. 

Thanks again to everyone who participated in this project. A simple gift, packed with love, can communicate hope and transform the lives of children worldwide. 

Nicole Sheldon

Upper Midwest regional director for Operation Christmas Child
