Operation Christmas Child http://wrvo.org en Operation Christmas Child brings gifts, joy to world's children http://wrvo.org/post/operation-christmas-child-brings-gifts-joy-worlds-children <p>While out shopping for gifts for family and friends this holiday season, some charitable shoppers also reached for dolls, notepads and toiletries to pack into a shoebox for a child overseas. The shoeboxes not only give impoverished kids some necessities, but something less tangible -- hope.<br /><br />Recently, hundreds of festive shoeboxes line the walls of Oswego Alliance Church. Volunteers take a couple minutes to stack each box, straightening out the red and green columns into one uniform wall. None of the boxes have shoes in them.<br /> Wed, 25 Dec 2013 10:34:00 +0000 Gino Geruntino 48975 at http://wrvo.org Operation Christmas Child brings gifts, joy to world's children
