The giving spirit begins young at Anderdon Public School.

The junior and senior kindergarten classes at the school – four classes in total – participated in “Operation Shoebox” and brought in a number of items to donate. Donations included pencils, pencil sharpeners, toys, toothbrushes, soap, small musical instruments, stuffed animals, clothing, paper, crayons and other materials.

“We’ve been very busy donating new items for Operation Shoebox,” explained Elaine Gibel, one of the kindergarten teachers at Anderdon Public School.

The shoeboxes will be screened in Guelph before they are sent to third-world countries.

“These go to South America,” said Gibel.

Some are delivered by barge while others are transported to tough-to-reach areas by other means, including helicopters.

“They go to very remote areas of the world,” said Gibel.

Collection of the supplies took place over a three-week period.
