Serving Waitsburg, Dayton and the Touchet Valley

Operation Christmas Child Shoebox campaign is back

Local churches are organizing the annual Operation Christmas Child Shoebox campaign. Donations of gifts appropriate for children ages 2 through 14 are being collected at the Waitsburg Christian Church and Waitsburg Presbyterian Church, now through October 31. You can also pick up a box to fill at local businesses, including Ten Ton Coffee and the Waitsburg Grocery on Main Street.

Suggested items include toys for various age groups, sports equipment, school/art supplies, socks, sunglasses, and some personal care items such as toothbrushes and combs. No used items, food, perishables, liquids or lotions, toothpaste, or aerosol cans. A complete list of ideas can be found inside the donation boxes.

Community members are invited to help assemble the gift boxes at the Waitsburg Presbyterian Church basement on Saturday, Nov. 12 at 9 am. For more information, contact Barb Abbey, 509-386-2209.
