Local church fills Operation Christmas Child boxes

Parishioners and community volunteers were responsible for filling more than 100 shoeboxes with toys, personal care items and other surprises as part of Operation Christmas Child earlier this month at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Colon.
Ben and Diane Crist, summer residents at Gilead Lake, introduced Kathy Schemmel of Colon to the project last year. Using church and community connections, Schemmel was able to get 93 boxes done in Colon last year.
Schemmel said she was confident Colon could send even more boxes in 2016 and was proven correct.
