Lethbridge Operation Christmas Child delivered shoeboxes to Calgary full of toys, school supplies and other essentials. The boxes will be heading out overseas to kids most in need. A local church collected the boxes from around our region and a pastor with Park Meadows Baptist Church says being able to help more children this Christmas feels amazing.
“It is a beautiful thing to see, to see volunteers, to see the community and the city and the surrounding area of Lethbridge to be united, to come and bring these gifts for kids to receive for the very first time. I mean, that just warms your heart. And as a pastor, I pray for these kids. I pray for the boxes that God’s will would be done and that he would just open their eyes in amazing ways.”
A total of 3,039 boxes were packaged and sent to Calgary.
