Christmas gifts appreciated

Dear Editor,

I’m writing to thank LaFayette residents for their generosity in helping thousands of suffering children worldwide this Christmas.

Through their efforts, we were  able  to  contribute  towards 18,300  shoeboxes  collected within   the    Chatahoochee Valley area—filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items—for Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind. These simple gift-filled shoeboxes communicate to needy children that they are loved and not forgotten.

Shoebox gifts can be packed any time and gifts are received year-round at Samaritan’s Purse (801 Bamboo Road, Boone, N.C., 28607) or using the project’s online tool, where donors can virtually build a box. To get involved, visit or call (770) 777-9342.

Thanks again to everyone who participated in this project. A simple gift, packed with love, can communicate hope and transform the lives of children worldwide.
