To the Editor:
I’m writing to thank Piqua residents for their generosity in helping thousands of suffering children worldwide this Christmas. Through their efforts, we were able to collect 443 shoeboxes — filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items — for Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind. These simple gift-filled shoeboxes communicate to needy children that they are loved and not forgotten.
 
Although drop-off locations in Piqua are closed until November 2014, shoebox gifts can be packed any time. Gifts are received year-round at Samaritan’s Purse (801 Bamboo Road, Boone, N.C., 28607) or using the project’s online tool, where donors can virtually build a box. To get involved, visit samaritanspurse.org or call (937) 374-0761.
 
Thanks again to everyone who participated in this project. A simple gift, packed with love, can communicate hope and transform the lives of children worldwide.
 
Sincerely,
 
Bonnie Freeman
Regional Director | Great Lakes
Operation Christmas Child
