Riverview Church of Pine River is an Operation Christmas Child Samaritan’s Purse shoe box dropoff location this November.
Participants are asked to pack a shoe box with gifts for a child in one of several categories: boy or girl, ages 2-4, 5-9 or 10-14. Samaritan’s Purse asks that the box includes one item the child can immediately embrace such as a stuffed toy, ball, doll or toy truck. A $7 donation is also requested to cover a portion of the shipping costs.
More information is available online at www.samaritanspurse.org. Drop off at the church is available Nov. 18, 3-6 p.m.; Nov. 19, 4-7 p.m.; Nov. 20-21, 3-6 p.m.; Nov. 22, 3-5 p.m.; Nov. 23, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Nov. 24, noon-3 p.m.; and Nov. 25, 8-10 a.m.
