Letter to the editor: Operation Christmas Child to hold kick-off event

-A A +A

As fall arrives it is also time to start planning and praying for shoebox collection through Operation Christmas Child. Collection week this year is Nov. 18-25 and Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church will once again nerve serve as your relay center to accept your shoeboxes during that week.
Specific days and times will be announced later.
I want to invite each and every one of you to Pleasant Ridge on Thursday, Oct. 3 beginning at 6:30 p.m. for an area-wide kick-off event. This will be a time to get supplies and materials and I will personally be sharing some of the experiences in Uganda when I distributed shoeboxes a few months ago.
You will want to make every effort to attend on Oct. 3 as we approach this exciting season. Those attending will be able to pick up a limited supply of the red and green decorated shoeboxes to help get you started packing shoeboxes.
Join us at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct 3. at Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church for a time to kick-off the 2013 shoebox collection season. You will receive a blessing. My contact information is 502-750-1488 or email me at wdlinda@bellsouth.net. Hope to see you there.
