Students at Caroline School donates shoe boxes to Operation Christmas Child

Caroline School students once again rose to the challenge of brightening the day for less fortunate children in other countries by filling shoe boxes with personal kinds of items. This annual event has now been supported for many years by members of the Caroline community and this year's harvest was 59 shoe boxes. Organizers this year were Mrs. Denham and Ms. Kanda, along with helpers seen in the photo. The parcels are destined to the distribution center in Calgary where they will be sorted on December 3. Last year, Canadians donated 640,569 shoe boxes to the program, run by the Samaritan's Purse organization.
