(Atlantic) A big thank you is being extended to anyone who donated to Operation Christmas Child this year.
Co-coordinator Stacy Pellett would like to thank donors for helping establish a new record.
"A huge thank you to southwest Iowa this year was one for the record books for us. We were so grateful for everyone that built a box for someone around the world. We brought in 3,057 shoeboxes."
Pellett notes that the boxes are sent to children in need across the globe.
"Those that came from southwest Iowa will go to Chile, Bolivia, parts of Brazil, and India, but for the most part ours are going into Central and Latin America.”
Operation Christmas Child in Atlantic received 750 more donations compared to a year ago.
