Operation Christmas Child is in full swing with collections pouring in this week at First United Methodist Church. Local residents still have time to donate a shoebox and help make the holiday season a little brighter for a child.Collections continue every day this weekend before ending Monday at 10 a.m.“I’ve been making and donating shoeboxes for years, but I don’t think I understood the other side of the ministry until now,” said Makailah Bleedner, who graduated from Warren County High School and is in her sophomore year at Union University in Jackson, Tenn. Bleedner, 19, was among a group of 20 youth who to traveled to the Philippines in July.
