Operation Christmas Child an organization that delivers thousands of shoe boxes filled with small toys, school supplies, hygiene items and candy. The boxes are packed and shipped overseas to the children around the world that are able to use the items and often don’t have access to the small things we take for granted. The northwest area of the Texas panhandle, the Oklahoma panhandle and northeast New Mexico participated in this years drive to collect 1000 shoe boxes.
