Wow! What an over-whelming response we had last week to our Samaritan Purse Operation Christmas shoeboxes! Thank you so much to everyone who contributed and donated items to give to children around the world in need. The children will be so pleased with the gifts they receive. As a school, Holy Family had so many donations that we filled ALL 25 of our boxes and still had more items to spare!! We will keep what remains and donate it to our next Christmas drive (Wilmot Resource Centre Christmas Hampers).
The Christmas Shoeboxes were dropped off on Friday November 22nd, and in New Hamburg alone they had already received almost 700 shoeboxes!!! Imagine how many will be collected Canada wide and sent overseas!!! Thanks again for your support and participation in this wonderful opportunity to spread Christmas cheer!
