In July, members and friends of Community Church at Ocean Pines filled over 210 shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child.

Many also contained small items of clothing. They will be sent to over 120 countries where some children have never received a gift and have very little to call their own. Among those stuffing boxes were Anthony Allen, Ava Schultz and Addy Lassiter. Submitted Photos
