Our annual drive to collect donations for Operation Christmas Child is now complete! Lion Elizabeth had posted posters. Lions Shauna and Deanna delivered collection 'Christmas Bags'. Lion Roger has acquired 125 empty boxes for distribution and pickup at the Magrath Pharmacy. Leos are working on creating posters as well for the School and around Town. Wed 20 Nov at 6:00pm we booked the SASH building for a 1 hour Box Stuffing party. 14 interested volunteers attended and helped prepare some 50 boxes, from items collected primarily from the Magrath School, in record time. Fri 22 Nov 2013 by 6pm at Magrath Pharmacy was the last day of the drive here in Magrath. We took all donations into Lethbridge to their collection points that weekend. Thanks again for helping us help you! Magrath Lions
RESULT: We are pleased to report 81 donated boxes were safely delivered to Lethbridge depot on Sat 23 Nov 2013 by Lion Roger and Shauna (despite a fussy van engine). Many also chose to donate monies for shipping far beyond the $7 per box requested! We don't see all the donations, as many are included in sealed envelopes inside the boxes, but we did see several hundred dollars for additional shipping donations. Thanks to all for your great support this year. See you next time!
