Operation Christmas Child Successful

To The Editor:

Thanks to the generosity of the neighbors in Fulton County many children around the world have something to smile about – Operation Christmas Child (shoebox project).

The world’s largest Christmas project collected 1,216 gift-filled shoeboxes from local residents during this year’s collection season.

With the donations of shoebox gifts from churches, individuals and community groups, Operation Christmas Child will be able to hand-deliver some 8 million gifts to children in more than 90 countries.

To everyone in Fulton County who packed a shoe box gift, I thank you for joining in this amazing outreach, and for giving to others at Christmas.

Thanks again to everyone who participated in the project. I look forward to seeing you again next year. Merry Christmas.
