Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box

Coordinator Sharon Settle has announced that thanks to the cooperative efforts of area businesses and residents the shoe box collection for Operation Christmas Child has completed a successful season with 1301 shoe boxes collected. 

She believes the success is due to the cooperation of Fredericktown Mayor Danny Kemp for his support of the project, Century 21-Statler Realty who provided the truck to transport the boxes to the site at Millersville, where they will be loaded into tractor trailers to begin their journey, to SMTS, Inc. for providing the location for the local collection site and the many area businesses and organizations who made the Operation Christmas Child brochures and shoe boxes available to the public.

Operation Christmas Child will hand deliver about 8 million shoe boxes in 100 countries to needy children who are suffering from natural disaster, war, terrorism, disease, poverty, and famine.
