First Baptist Church in Carrollton is again organizing Operation Christmas Child Shoebox locally, as part of the world’s largest Christmas project of it’s kind.
Organizers say the shoeboxes demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children in 88 different countries, including the Unites States. Last year they were able to reach 92.8 million children around the globe.
Amy Hinman was named September’s employee of the month at Carroll County Memorial Hospital. Hinman has been with the hospital for two years, working on the medical/surgical floor as a licensed practical nurse. In giving her the honor, hospital administrators said she is always willing to help out in any department where she is needed and she is always pleasant to be around.
