MacArthur's Elves Share in the Spirit of the Holidays
On Friday, November 17th, MacArthur's Athletes for a Better Community Club took part in their annual Operation Christmas Child project. Operation Christmas Child is an organization that collects goods and essentials for children in needall throughout the world. The MacArthur ABC Club students each took a shoe box and went from store to store looking for objects to donate to the organization. The shoe boxes were filled with necessities like toothbrushes and soap and wish list items like soccer balls, dolls and puzzles. Once the boxes were filled, they were collected and sent to the organization. These boxes are currently being shipped all throughout the world. The ABC club members put trackers on their shoeboxes to follow the gifts' journey to its final destination. The club's goal was to collect 200 boxes but through generous donations they were able to collect and ship 300. Way to go to the ABC club members.
