Operation Chrismas Child helps kids around the world

Operation Christmas Child In West Michigan

West Michigan residents and organizations are filling shoe boxes with toys, hygiene items, school supplies, notes of encouragement and other things to help out children from around the world. It's for Operation Christmas Child, a project spearheaded by the organization Samaritan's Purse. The shoe boxes will be distributed to children living among poverty, war, disease, or natural disaster. The West Michigan area hopes to donate 50,000 boxes to the cause this year.
