Shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child show children worldwide that they are loved. Simple items like small toys, school supplies and hygiene items are treasures to boys and girls who have very little to call their own and otherwise have no gifts on Christmas. The Weiser Community Church is again the shoebox drop off point for the Western Treasure Valley (Council to Fruitland). The collection dates are November 13th to November 20th. Monday – Friday drop of times are 3 – 6pm, Sat. Nov, 18 is 10 – 5pm, Sunday Nov. 19 2 – 4pm, Monday Nov. 20 9 – 11am, 240 East Main in Weiser, Id. If you have questions about the program or how to pack a shoebox you can visit the website: samaritanspurse.org/occ or call our local coordinator, Vicki Lukehart at 208-550-0805. We hope to see you on Shoebox Week!
