Update on Collection for Pine Ridge Christmas Shoeboxes
It was such a joy to work with the congregation in collecting Christmas shoeboxes for the children of Pine Ridge Reservation. People really enjoy shopping for items that will be fun for whichever age group they’ve chosen. We collected 187 shoeboxes this year! We filled 19 cartons! Thank you to everyone who donated gifts and money!
The Wellspring helpers were invaluable. Lynne Bowen helped each Sunday and also was my information resource and brainstorming partner. Her daughter Stacy also helped. Phil was our muscles and main gift wrapper. Sarah Martin was an enormous help on Monday and Tuesday finishing up checking, wrapping, and packing cartons. Mike Connors was our truck loader and driver to the post office. It’s always great to see the body of Christ working together to accomplish a goal.
Thanks for the opportunity to be involved with Pine Ridge in this way.
