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.
