Have you any idea how much hope and love and joy was packed up and shipped out of Worthington in November?

The annual Operation Christmas Child shoebox project, which sends gifts around the world, has just been completed. A total of 10,553 boxes were collected from the area and are on their way. A total of 2,793 of these boxes were donated locally. These boxes will got to Central American countries, Africa, Mongolia, and Chile and Uruguay.

Thank you to the community for help and support in various ways. We are very grateful to college athletes for their help.
