Letter to the editor: Thanks for gifts

DISCUSS
Comments
 

I wanted to write to thank fellow Fort Wayne residents who generously gave of their time and means to help impact thousands of hurting kids this Christmas. Together we were able to pack 31,000 shoe boxes — filled with toys, school supplies and basic necessities — for Operation Christmas Child. Our packed shoe box gifts, joined by millions of others, are now on their way to needy children in 100 countries. During the 2012 collection season, Operation Christmas Child reached a milestone — more than 100 million children have been impacted by the power of a simple gift since 1993.

Although our local drop-off locations here in Fort Wayne are closed, gifts are received year-round at Samaritan’s Purse by mailing them to 801 Bamboo Road, Boone, N.C., 28607.

Bonnie Freeman, regional director, Great Lakes, Operation Christmas Child
