A slew of shoeboxes

Seven members of Robinsonville Baptist Church surprised local Operation Christmas Child volunteers November 17 with three carloads of shoeboxes to donate to the holiday initiative. The church, which has a ‘regular attendance’ of about 40 people, delivered 194 of the gift-filled boxes. The local collections ended November 20.
