Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box Collection Celebration

Last week was the National Collection week for the Operation Christmas Child boxes. momstown Winnipeg mom's got together to fill and decorate their boxes. The kids all enjoyed going out to shop for items to fill up their shoe boxes. It taught them all a great lesson of giving.

The enjoyed decorating the boxes just as much. And just like most of our craft events mom usually jumps in to help out. But we loved it and had a blast. And to top it off we had Christmas music playing and some treats to nibble on.

Thanks again to everyone who participated in this great cause! We had a very good response. As a result of our momstown mom's generosity, 18 kids will be blessed with a gift they otherwise would have never received! What a great way to start the Holidays with the true spirit of this Christmas Season!

A special thanks to our member, Penka Thompson, for putting together this great event!
