It is Shoebox collection time!! Some churches have already started their Christmas shoebox drives, others are now starting.
For those of you new to following Ninos, we have an annual event and hand out shoeboxes to the children in Porvenir and surrounding areas. This event may provide the only presents they get. Last year, we estimate that 1300 were given out. About 10 churches participated. We also gave out donated stuffed animals (we don’t need any more this year because we have a big supply). We also have other neat items for the kids.
Alma Rosa Najera has an exciting production planned with local entertainment focused on the Christmas message on December 6.
