Collection Sites Open to Help Global Christmas Project Reach Children in Need

Operation Christmas ChildVolunteers from the Eastside Washington Area Team are celebrating the record-breaking collection of 14,600 gift-filled shoeboxes that will remind children around the world they are loved and not forgotten.

The Samaritan’s Purse project, Operation Christmas Child surpassed last year’s Eastside Washington Area Team donations of shoebox gifts. The Eastside Washington Area Team is now thanking the Bellevue community for their generous contributions already on their way to children in need worldwide. For many of these children, the shoebox gift will be the first gift they ever receive.
