I hope you are anxious to get back to Operation Christmas Child. List of items needed in shoeboxes will be posted at church and available at the church. I’ll include a list here. Maybe some will be shopping in the next few days. If you have been making items at home, you can leave them at the church. We’ll try to get going “full speed ahead” soon.
