Operation Christmas Child Drive
The LIGHT Club is going to be collecting items for our annual Operation Christmas Child drive. Operation Christmas Child is an organization that sends shoe boxes filled with Christmas gifts to disadvantaged children all over the world. The items can include balls, small stuffed animals, art supplies, dollar store toys, hygiene items, etc. We will be collecting items through Tuesday, November 7th. If you would like to donate items, there will be bags set up in the main office, the library, room 205, room 502, and room 416. If you would just like to donate cash, that's terrific too. We will shop for items to fill the boxes. See Mrs. Wenner with donations and any questions. Thanks for your help!
