HUBER HEIGHTS — The youth group of Faith Presbyterian Church, the Faithful Few, have supported the Operation Christmas Child each year. They just completed filling 36 gift-filled shoe boxes with the help of donations from the Faith congregation and their own group.
Donations of school supplies, fun toys, hygiene items, notes of encouragement, monetary contributions., and Christmas wrapped shoe boxes were organized by the Faithful Few. The goal in 2015 hopes to reach 11 million children. The purpose of Operation Christmas Child is to deliver the boxes to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children around the world.
The women of Faith Presbyterian Church in the Linus Project have just finished delivering 46 blankets after completing another project goal.
The colorful and warm children’s quilts will be given to children in distress, whether due to illness, trauma or some sort of natural disaster. The blankets are distributed through hospitals and other agencies by nurses, social workers, and others.
The group meets every Wednesday from September through May from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the church. Everyone is welcome regardless of sewing skills. The church is at 5555 Chambersburg Rd. and the phone is 233-0873. Rev. Maggie Gillespie is the Pastor.
