Operation Christmas child

Tolland - posted Dec, 09 2013

TOLLAND - Tolland locals are making a difference in the lives of more than 1,100 needy children this Christmas with gift-filled shoeboxes. Through Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, local volunteers prepared more than 1,100 gifts filled with toys, school supplies, hygiene items and notes of encouragement. Although local collection of the gifts is finished, the shoeboxes’ journey to children has just begun. Volunteers will be working in the coming weeks to prepare, package and transport the 7.2 million gifts collected in Tolland and across the United States to their final destination. Tolland residents can still get involved by building a box online. Through an online tool, participants can conveniently send shoebox gifts to kids in some of the hardest-to-reach countries.
