On Monday, 75 shoe boxes were delivered to Mt. Olive Baptist Church in Duluth. Mt. Olive is one of over 4000 drop off locations in the U.S. From Duluth our shoe boxes will be transported to Bloomington, MN, one of several processing sites in the country. From there it will be shipped to a child in need. It costs Operation Christmas Child $7/shoe box to process and transport. Thank you for your generosity with our special offering last week.
