LADIES THAT FILLED BOXES.
Providing a little Christmas Cheer to the military forces
Approximately ten years ago, at the start of the Iraq War, the Catholic Daughters Court Queen of Peace of St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Slayton, came together and decided to help those protecting our country have a brighter Christmas.

That first year, names were collected from families in the area that had members serving, materials were purchased, and items lovingly boxed and sent overseas to those serving in Iraq. “Our group purchased everything that was encased in each of those over 30 boxes,” said Glenna Miller, member of the organization.

The tradition carried on, only the next year the organization put a call out to the community to assist with their effort. And contribute they did. “The community has been so very supportive of this effort,” said Glenna Miller, member of the group. “We have not wanted for anything. Once the items needed are published in the paper, donations start coming in.”
