Operation Shoebox Project The Crusaders for Christ are getting ready for our annual "Operation Shoebox Project." We will be filling boxes December 7th & 8th, during the December L.I.G.H.T. program. All boxes will be donated to the Battered Women's Shelter of Medina and the Medina Community Center and will be given to children 2-14 years old. This is a great service project for our group but we are in need of your help. We still have a need for personal care items such as tooth brushes, tooth paste, bar soap, winter hats and mittens/gloves, as well as small toys, activity books and coloring books, and of course, shoe boxes. Donations will be accepted at all the Masses, November 21-22, and November28-29. Look for our table in the Gathering Area. Thank you for your help with this worthwhile project!
