Letter to the editor – Dear Choctaw County

Dear Choctaw County,

I’m writing to thank Ackerman residents for their generosity in helping thousands of suffering children worldwide this Christmas. Through their efforts, we were able to contribute towards 30,700 shoeboxes collected within the Columbus area—filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items—for Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind. These simple gift-filled shoeboxes communicate to needy children that they are loved and not forgotten.
