    Deadline for Operation Christmas Child Shoe Boxes, November 10

    CALGARY, Nov. 8 /CNW/ - You've only got a couple of days left to pack a
shoe box gift and bring hope to a needy child in the world!
    November 10 is fast approaching, but there is still time to join
thousands of other Canadians who have packed shoe box gifts full of small
toys, hygiene items and school supplies that will make a tangible difference
in the life of a hurting child.

        toothpaste!), school supplies, clothes, candy, and a hand-written
        note of encouragement along with a photo of yourself, if possible.
