Gifts for the world

A huge thank-you to the people of Chelan, Douglas, Grant and Okanogan counties who so generously donated to Operation Christmas Child in 2013. Together we were able to amass 7,346 gift-filled shoe boxes that went to children in Indonesia, Nepal, Madagascar, Ukraine, Panama, the Philippines, South Africa, Senegal and Mexico. Our shoe boxes, along with others collected from the United States and other sending countries, totaled 9.95 million and are now on their way to over 100 countries. For many of the children receiving a shoe box, this will be the first gift they have ever received. The fact that someone cared enough to send them a shoe box will impact their life forever.
