St. John Lutheran Church and School in Merrill participated in Operation Christmas Child and in two weeks, packed 42 boxes for needy children in third world countries.
They got a late start getting involved with the program this year, but are already planning to be a drop-off center for the Merrill area next year and “hope to collect next year 150 shoe boxes for those in need,” said Pastor David Szeto.
“The school and church both participated,” he said, and “the pre-school put together 15 kits alone!”
