Marshall contributes 802 shoeboxes for needy children worldwide

Last week, 802 shoe boxes filled with toys, school supplies, and other items were dropped off at Radiant Life Church in Marshall. It was National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child, and the gift-filled shoe boxes are now in the process of being shipped to needy children around the world.

Even though National Collection Week is over, it's not too late to pack a shoe box. Operation Christmas Child has launched Build A Box - an online tool offering a personalized and convenient way to send Christmas gifts to even more children.

At, donors select a child's age and gender; shop through an online selection of toys, necessity items, and school supplies; and finish it off with a personalized note of encouragement. The gift boxes will be assembled by volunteers at Operation Christmas Child s processing center in Charlotte, N.C. Through tracking technology, donors can "follow the box" to find out where it will be delivered.

Operation Christmas Child is part of the international Christian relief and evangelism organization Samaritan's Purse. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has delivered more than 77 million gift-filled shoe boxes to needy children in more than 130 countries.
