Timberline Interact Club filled 55 shoeboxes for children living in third-world countries as part of Operation Christmas Child.

Timberline tops friendly rivalry

Students from both Carihi and Timberline competed head to head this year to fill shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child

Timberline school prevailed in a friendly competition between two local high schools, but the real winners are less fortunate children.

Students from both Carihi and Timberline competed head to head this year to fill shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.

Timberline Interact students filled 55 boxes and Carihi filled 46.

Interact clubs at both schools have taken part in Operation Christmas Child for several years.

Operation Christmas Child is an initiative of the Christian organization Samaritan’s Purse, which helps improve the quality of life for people living in third world countries. With Operation Christmas Child, shoeboxes are filled with presents for either a boy or girl and then delivered just in time for Christmas. This year, boxes from Western Canada will be going to countries in Central and South America.

Last year, Campbell Riverites packed 1,195 boxes and the goal this year is 1,400.
