Thanks for help with ‘shoebox’ program

Bluefield Daily Telegraph

— — I want to thank all partners or donors who made this year a great one for Operation Christmas Child. I am the relay center coordinator in Bluefield. Our drop-off location was at the Bluefield First Church of the Nazarene on Stadium Drive. This was our second year at their Family Life Center, and I want to thank the church family there for the wonderful facility which we were able to use.

We collected 1,746 shoeboxes from all over Mercer and Tazewell counties. Graham Middle School and National Business College were some of the new donors this year with shoeboxes. They were sent to Boone N.C., to a large processing center and will go overseas to children who need faith and love shown to them by a simple gift — a shoebox.

Thank you all and berry Christmas.
