People of the High Country are starting to fill shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.

National shoebox collection week is from November 12th through November 19th.

Samaritan’s Purse leads Operation Christmas Child each year -- a project that delivers millions of shoeboxes full of gifts and supplies for children in third world countries.

Shoeboxes can be dropped off during collection week at the Operation Christmas Child Processing Center in Boone on Bamboo Road.

Several local churches in the High Country are also collecting shoeboxes to be delivered to the processing center.
