On September 20th, the West Laurens Anchor Club braided jump ropes to be donated to Operation Christmas Child. The jump ropes are created from donated t-shirts. The shirts are cut into strips and the strips are braided into 7ft ropes. The ropes will be included in the shoeboxes sent around the world with the Operation Christmas Child program. The Anchors plan to do this project for October as well. They set a goal to complete 40 jump ropes this year.
