I’m writing to thank Elizabeth City area residents for their generosity in helping thousands of suffering children worldwide this past Christmas. Through their efforts, we were able to collect more than 9,112 shoeboxes, each one filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items, for Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind. These simple gift-filled shoeboxes communicate to needy children that they are loved and not forgotten.
