Gift Filled Shoeboxes Sought Children who live in impoverished areas around the world will receive some help from Warren County residents this year. Fellowship Community Church, 225 North Ave is accepting shoeboxes filled with small gifts and school supplies for Operation Christmas Child, a project run by the Christian relief organization Samaritan's Purse. Items collected by the church will be donated to economically-disadvantaged youngsters around the world. A lack of Basic school supplies sometimes keeps children from attending school in poor communities. But for ,Operation Christmas Child, a year-round initiative that has gathered more than 100 million shoeboxes filled with goods since its estab- lishment in i993, the effort does not stop with goods for the classroom. Donors may also package hygiene products, small toys, small books, coloring books and stuffed animals, among other items. Operation Christmas Child officials expect to send over 9.8 million shoebox gifts to poor youngsters this year. Fellowship Community Church has a goal of 350 filled shoeboxes this year. For many of these children, the shoebox will be the very first gift they have ever received. The shoebox gives them hope. Everyone is welcome to assist the Operation Christmas Child effort. Fellowship Community Church is a dropoff location for the Warren County area. Bring your filled shoebox and $7 for shipping during the following times: Monday, Nov. 18- Saturda Nov. 23, 4-6 p.m. each day; Sunda Nov. 24, 4-6 p.m.; Monda3 Nov. 25, 7 a.m.-9 p.m. November 25 is the last day to bring in boxes.
