Every year 11 counties in Southeast Mississippi partner up with Operation Christmas Child to deliver gift-filled shoe boxes to thousands of hurting children across the world.
National Collection Week began November 12, and with only two more days left, Hattiesburg’s First Baptist Church is asking for the communities involvement in order to not only meet their goal, but also Southeast Mississippi’s goal of 30,000 shoe boxes.
“This is an opportunity to put a gift in a child’s hand in one of a hundred and forty or so countries that they go to,” said Southeast Collection Network Coordinator Wayne Landers. “It may be the first gift that they've ever received in their lives. We're actually running a little bit behind where we were last year here, but we do have a couple days left so we urge everybody to get their boxes in.”
