Ready for shoeboxes

Drop-off facility coordinator Glenn Coram and area coordinator Kathy Butler are looking forward to seeing how many shoeboxes will be donated for Operation Christmas Child. Drop-off week will be Nov. 15-22 at Immanuel Baptist Church, 1119 Market St., Metropolis. Times are 2-6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 15, through Saturday, Nov. 20, noon until 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 21, and 9-11 a.m. Monday, Nov. 22. Shoeboxes will be distributed by Samaritan’s Purse to children throughout the world. A $9 donation helps with shipping cost. For more information on accepted items and donations, visit samaritanspurse.org/occ or contact the church at 618-524-2729. Look for the story in the Nov. 10 Metropolis Planet.
