It’s National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child, and Craig residents are doing their part to make it a success. Julie Grobe will be at Calvary Baptist Church every day this week from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and until noon Sunday, collecting boxes for Operation Christmas Child to take to Grand Junction Sunday. Operation Christmas Child began in 1993 and was started by Samaritan’s Purse. It works internationally to provide underprivileged children with Christmas gifts and the story of Christ’s love.
