Members and friends of Christ Church assembled 22 bags of Thanksgiving “fixins” to help the people of the Merrill area enjoy a wonderful holiday meal. With the bags that were donated from Wildwood Chapel, there were 34 Turkey Bags delivered to the Merrill Community Food Pantry on November 14th. Officials at the food pantry were very appreciative of the items given. There was certainly a vehicle full by the time all the bags were loaded.
And Christ Church once again participated in Operation Christmas Child this year! Between our packing party shoeboxes and the shoeboxes packed by individuals, a total of 115 boxes were donated to children in need. Additionally, $505 was donated to help pay the shipping costs. This does not include the funds that individuals put into the boxes! -Submitted by Mike Zahn
