Thirty-two Pierce Downer families are bringing JOY this holiday season to 52 needy children on the other side of the globe!! At a recent Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Packing Party, 52 shoeboxes were packed with toys, functional items like sewing kits and screwdrivers, a handmade craft and a special note for the child. In the past the shoeboxes PD students have packed were sent to India, Ecuador and Tanzania. This year, your child can track where his/her box will be delivered by typing in this barcode FYB6FA60FC5-9F23-40BA-A95D-1661E4BFD2D8 at the following link:https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/follow-your-box-lookup/. The Service Learning Committee would like to thank all the families, staff and teachers who supported this event – it could not have happened without you!
