Daily Announcements

Dora students contributed close to 150 shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.  Only about half of these included postage of $7, so the FCA will have to make up the difference.  If anyone wants to contribute to postage, please send money to the office.  This is a service project for FCA to give a Christmas present to a less fortunate child. 

Each box cost $7 to ship.  Make checks to Dora FCA.

Thank you for your contributions.
