It’s shoebox pick up time

Anyone who filled a shoebox this year for the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child campaign needs to drop them off this week.

The final day to take your gift filled shoebox to your nearest drop-off centre in the East Kootenay is Sunday, November 25.

The shoeboxes will be delivered to millions of children around the world, to make sure they have something to smile about this Christmas. Nearly 100 million shoeboxes have been delivered since the campaign started in 1993.

Canadian Dollar Store.

The shoeboxes can be dropped off at Extra Foods, Overwatea in Fernie and Sparwood and all East Kootenay Community Credit Unions in the Elk Valley.
