CRHS students send 3,288 gift boxes to children in need through Operation Christmas Child

West Park Church on Shiloh Pike recently served as the largest drop-off center in South Jersey for Operation Christmas Child, an effort to send gifts to youth in disadvantaged communities during the holiday season. 

Cumberland Regional students, led by Mrs. Lloyd, contributed a total of more than 62 hours of their time supporting this initiative. CRHS students worked hard preparing, processing, and loading 3,288 shoeboxes full of age-appropriate gifts into a U-Haul for transportation to the next stop on their journey.

"All through the week, students of the Leo and Interact Clubs came to the drop-off center to assist with the process," said Karen Johns, OCC Drop-Off Coordinator for West Park Church. "I can honestly say that we could not have done it without these hardworking students. No job was too much trouble, and all work was completed efficiently and in a timely manner."

CRHS students who contributed to Operation Christmas Child included Neerja Patel, Beatrice Seabrook, Samuel Thompson, Jackie Villalpando, Cody Walker, Cole Walker, Joseph Joyce, Asher Kennedy, Lilli Kiefer, Stella Kiefer, Sarah Laubsch, Alessandra Lorito, Scott Magee, Anthony Bui, Emma Fylstra, Camille Forte, Ava Gladney, Bryan Harris, and Kaleb Wilson.
