On the photo: Board of Trustees President Stephanie Dello Russo and Pastor Claude Hubbard with some of the shoe boxes made by the congregation of Alpine Community Church for Operation Christmas Child. The boxes, filled with presents, school supplies and other things, will be sent to children in need around the world.
Background: Each person takes home a shoe box from church. They have a list of items that they can purchase and use to fill the shoe boxes. The shoe boxes are sent to kids in the more impoverished or drought/natural disaster stricken or war torn areas around the world. A personal note is included from the person or family that put the box together.
