Operation Christmas Child leaders from the South Triangle, including Johnston County, will gather together for an interactive planning workshop later this week.
The purpose of the workshop is to equip attendees to effectively prepare, lead and promote local shoebox collection activities.
The event takes place this Thursday, Aug. 31st from 6pm until 8pm at the Christ Community United Methodist Church located at 1082 Amelia Church Road in Clayton.
Because of the dedicated efforts of these leaders and the generosity of donors, 29,727 boxes were collected from this region in 2016 for children suffering from poverty, natural disasters, war, disease and famine.
Those not currently involved in Operation Christmas Child but are interested in learning more are welcome to attend and can RSVP at http://evite.me/PsrdJgdWFV.
