First Church is collecting boxes of personal care items for this year’s Operation Christmas Child.
Through this ministry, the public is invited to fill one or more shoe-sized boxes with toiletries (comb, hairbrush, toothbrush, washcloth, etc.), toys, games, school supplies and a Wow item. The boxes are shipped to children in dire need in more than 100 countries around the world.
Boxes will be collected until Nov. 18. To participate or for more information, call or e-mail the church office at (717) 766-4611 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
