LETTER: Find another way to help kids

There’s much talk about the cancellation of the highly acclaimed Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes this year

There’s much talk about the cancellation of the highly acclaimed Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes this year.

Nonetheless, the decision to withdraw the program by the Thomas A. Swift Elementary school principal, citing that the program may contravene the BC School Act, was the right decision.

All institutions and organizations do have rules for their operations. Such guidelines must be adhered to by everyone. Think of the messes we’d be in if everyone decided to do as they see fit.

There’s no doubt that the organizers of this highly successful charitable operation will find another way to pursue their noble efforts in bringing such needed joy where children need it most.

Who could be against such noble efforts of sending some gifts and cheer to children in countries where they need it most?
