The Samaritan's Purse: Operation Christmas Child Program wrapped up last week after another successful year of donations throughout the community. Once again this year, I filled a shoebox up with items that will brighten a child's Christmas. Such simple day-to-day items that we take for granted, but will help a child have a Christmas they won't soon forget. There were various collection locations throughout the city; I dropped mine off at Kawartha Lakes Bible College where there were an overwhelming amount of boxes ready to be shipped off for distribution. Peterborough continues to show their giving and helpful nature in so many ways, even more so at this time of year.
