Mayor Jerry Marco proclaims October 30, 2023 as Operation Christmas Child Day
This week, Elkins Mayor Jerry Marco proclaimed October 30, 2023 as Operation Christmas Child Day in Elkins. Operation Christmas Child is a heartfelt initiative that has been spreading joy and goodwill for over two decades by providing children in need around the world with shoeboxes filled with love, compassion, and the spirit of Christmas.
Operation Christmas Child serves as an inspiring example of how a simple shoebox filled with small gifts, school supplies, and hygiene items can make a profound impact on the lives of countless children, not only providing them with material goods but also fostering a sense of belonging, love, and a reminder that they are not forgotten.
“I encourage all residents to consider participating in this noble effort by packing shoeboxes with gifts for children in need,” states Marco in the proclamation, “or by supporting the program in any way they can to bring smiles and warmth to children’s hearts during the holiday season.”
In attendance for the proclamation of Operation Christmas Child were Pastor Rinehart, Jeremiah Myers, Imre Barsy, Mayor Jerry Marco, Mary Johnson, and Bob Cowgill.
