A nearby location in Dalhart is being transformed into a drop-off center for Operation Christmas Child—the World’s largest Christmas project of its kind. At the local collection site, or Relay Center, in Dalhart, volunteers will soon be on hand to receive over 1,600 gift-filled shoeboxes, packed by caring New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma panhandle residents with toys, school supplies, hygiene items and notes of encouragement.

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international Christian relief and evangelism organization headed by Franklin Graham. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has delivered gift-filled shoeboxes to more than 146 million children in more than 160 countries and territories. The Relay Center for Dalhart is located at People’s Church, 1929 Apache Drive.
