  • Operation Christmas Child had a very successful week collecting 278 boxes!! This total surpassed our goal of 266 boxes.
    THANK YOU so much to all the people, churches, and the 4-H club who packed boxes for this mission project: The United Methodist Church for giving space to collect the boxes and for their donation of boxes; Augusta First Baptist Church; Augusta Southern Baptist Church; Douglass First Baptist Church; Douglass United Methodist Church; Rose Hill Christian Church; Southwest Community Church in Wichita; and the Augusta Lily lake 4-H Club.
    Thank you to Belinda and the Augusta Gazette for the advertisement and for printing this thank you.
    We loaded 18 cartons of boxes on Monday, Nov 19th and took them to Metro Baptist Church west of Andover. From Metro the cartons are sent by semi-truck to the processing center in Denver, CO. The shoe boxes from our area are then shipped to Mexico and to the Philippines.
    Thank you again from all the Operation Christmas Child volunteers and Merry Christmas!
