A huge thank you from Operation Christmas Child Canada to all North Islanders for their support of the Christmas shoebox program.
Your generosity is amazing!
The totals are in and you are a part of it: 364 shoeboxes from the North Island, 672, 274 shoeboxes from Canada and 8,630,568 globally.
These lovingly packed shoeboxes full of school supplies, hygiene items, candy, clothes, toys and a letter from you have blessed children and their families in many countries around the world.
Check out the Operation Christmas Child facebook page for stories of children who have received a box and also visit samaritanspurse.ca for more information on how to pack a shoebox for 2012.
