Sault Resident Travels Across Canada to Help Children in Need


Sault Ste. Marie resident Ruth Mathewson made the long trip to the Operation Christmas Child warehouse in Calgary to help inspect gift-filled shoeboxes before they are sent to children in Central America and west Africa.

“My passion is shoeboxes,” Ruth said, explaining why she travelled so far to volunteer with Operation Christmas Child.

“I know the impact these boxes make in children’s lives.” Sault Ste. Marie residents can still help children by packing shoeboxes.
