The students of St. Peter's R.C. School in Lewiston kicked off the season of giving by creating shoeboxes filled with gifts for Samaritan's Purse/Operation Christmas Child recipients around world.
Under the direction of Nayda Mease, the students each decorated a shoebox and filled it with small toys, socks and school supplies for children.
