    To the editor:

    Operation Christmas Child was a great success this year in Harrison County. Last year our community collected just over 700 boxes for this ministry. The total for this year was 834.  Wow!

    We would like to say thank you to our community in supporting this ministry. Whether you gave a monetary gift, an empty shoebox a filled shoebox or items to be placed in shoeboxes or maybe all you could do was pray, it was all deeply, deeply appreciated and will change the life of a child somewhere in the world.
