If you'd like to help, please drop off items to fill the humongous Operation Christmas Child shoe box that's located in the library. Just place your items in the box by Nov. 9th and the YCI club will take care of the rest. Shopping ideas can be found in the library at the OCC box or from Mrs. Jones in the 6th grade.
