Operation Christmas Child appeal starts
The annual Operation Christmas Child appeal is under way in southwestern North Dakota, with requests being made to fill shoe boxes with small toys, school supplies and hygiene items for children in Third World countries.
"It's to give children a Christmas gift. Normally, these children don't receive any type of gift -- it's the only one they receive," said coordinator Jodeen Myers.
Along with the gifts, a message of the good news of Jesus is placed into every box, she added.
