Merryhill students assemble holiday gifts

Submitted By Ashley Boarman

Preschoolers from Merryhill School assembled and stuffed more than 52 shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child, an international humanitarian organization that sends care packages to children in third world countries.

Throughout November, Merryhill students and their families collected items to fill the boxes, including shirts, socks, pencils, books, puzzles, games, stuffed animals, and hard candy. On November 22, students formed an assembly line and stuffed the boxes, which are being mailed to boys and girls in Africa, Indonesia, and the Philippines. Once an Operation Christmas Child box is delivered to its recipient, students will receive a photo of the boy or girl who received it.
