Tis’ the season to give the gift of giving! After the Peddler’s Faire on Saturday, October 6, Operation Christmas Child (OCC) kicked off the holiday season with their annual OCC Countdown and Packing Party event at the Faith Community Church in Wofford Heights. The KRV team hopes to reach a goal of 1,700 shoeboxes this year to send to children around the world that are in need of school supplies, shoes, toothbrushes and, of course, toys. For more information, call Irene Martinson at 760-417-2279.
