Charity gift boxes due
Shoeboxes filled with toys, hygiene items, school items, and even personal notes and photos to be delivered to needy children around the world will be collected through Monday at Parkview Mennonite Brethren Church in Hillsboro.
Boxes will be accepted from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. through Friday, 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sunday, and 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. Monday.
Each box should be labeled as being for a boy or girl in one of these age groups: 2 to 4, 5 to 9, or 10 to 14.
Boxes will be distributed by Operation Christian Child, sponsored by the Samaritan’s Purse charity. The charity asks for a $10 donation for shipping each box.
