National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child allows people the opportunity to give back to children around the world.
One collection site, Good Shepherd Ministries, hosted a packing party that brought in over 900 shoe boxes filled with gifts for boys and girls.
“We all ponder how can we make this world a better place … this is how you can. Pack a shoe box that’s going to go to a child that has nothing,” said Brenda Smith of Operation Christmas Child.
Good Shepherd Ministries will be collecting donations until Monday, November 19.
