Merry Christmas: Vanderhoof Girl Guides send supplies and toys abroad

For their Operation Christmas Child shoe box collection

For their Operation Christmas Child shoe box collection, Vanderhoof’s Sparks, Brownies, and Girl Guides recently collected and sorted 37 boxes filled with school supplies, toys and hygiene items to send away overseas.

The Guides, as older members of the group, sorted and organized the boxes for all the units.

“The girls were quite pleased with their efforts and were happy to be able to make a difference in the lives of other children,” said Kathy Russell, a Guide leader (second from the left) along with Amber Thorne (six from the left) of the Valley District Girl Guides. “Part of their program is to provide community and global service.”
