Russellville opens collection sites for world’s largest Christmas project


This month, locations in the Russellville area will serve as collection sites for Operation Christmas Child—the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind. The annual Samaritan’s Purse project is a favorite of many Russellville residents, families, churches and groups who spread joy to millions of children around the world by filling shoeboxes with a “Wow!” item—like a doll or soccer ball—other fun toys, school supplies, hygiene items and notes of encouragement.

“Through the simple act of filling a shoebox, someone in Russellville can make a tangible difference in the life of a child halfway around the world. Anyone can participate and bring joy to a child facing difficult circumstances,” said Regional Director Amy Johnson.

During National Collection Week, Nov. 16-23, Russellville and surrounding area residents hope to contribute more than 13,500 gift-filled shoeboxes to the 2015 global goal of reaching 11 million children in need.
