Thank you, thank you to all in Moab and neighboring communities who supported Operation Christmas Child this year. Through your kindness and generosity, 424 shoeboxes were sent to needy children around the world.

Your gifts of school supplies, hygiene items and toys bring the joy of Christmas to every child. Your contribution is a voice informing the children that someone in America cares for them. Most importantly, children were shown God’s love for them through your thoughtfulness. A very Merry Christmas to you and yours.
