Community thank you | Letters

Operation Christmas Child hopes to reach 10 million children in over 140 countries this year with shoeboxes filled with much needed gifts.

The generosity of our Friday Harbor community has just sent 225 shoeboxes to be part of this mission. Special thanks goto the Presbyterian Church and the Mary Martha Circle for bing the collection site and coordinating this event, King's Marine and Cotton, Cotton, Cotton for shoeboxes and Friday Harbor Freight for years of transporting these gifts to the distribution point in Burlington.

Your gifts will bring joy and squeals of excitement to many young children this Christmas. Thank you for your compassionate efforts.
