Valerie Skelton holds up a T-shirt before packing a gift box for kids in Russia as part of Operation Christmas Child. The project, sponsored by Samaritan's Purse, delivered 2,116 gifts last year from Juneau. Boxes are again being accepted this year for delivery. Suggested gifts are small toys, stuffed animals, T-shirts, baseball hats, school supplies, hygiene items and candy - except for chocolate. Boxes may be dropped off from 1 to 5 p.m. Nov. 13, and noon to 5 p.m. Nov. 14 through 18 at Chapel by the Lake. For more information, contact Justine Emerson at 463-3321.
