Help a child this Christmas receive a gift that wouldn’t otherwise get one. Join with the Groton FFA chapter as we partner with Operation Christmas Child to provide joy to children living in need. The mission is simple: grab a shoebox and a packaging tag (must be a medium size box, if you need one, you can see Mr. Franken) and follow the instructions on the tag to fill the box with toys, hygiene items and school supplies for children. There are some specific rules on what you can and cannot pack in the box that will be on the packaging tag. Make sure to attach the label to the box before you drop it off. If you have questions, please see Mr. Franken. The boxes need to be packed and dropped off in the ag room by Friday, November 16. You can pick up shoe boxes and packaging instructions in the ag room or in the office.
