Collection week underway for Operation Christmas Child

Posted:
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -

Send the magic of the holidays to kids in need all around the world with the return of Operation Christmas Child.

Groups all over our area are starting to collect shoe boxes this week for the annual charity project organized by Samaritan's Purse.  Calvary Evangelical Free Church in Rochester is one of those looking for donations of shoeboxes with gifts for children and hygiene items.

This year, they're requesting a nine dollar donation to handle shipping costs. Also no candy or toothpaste this year due to customs regulations. 

You can drop off your shoebox at the church from 10 to 6 this week, and noon to two on the weekend. The address is 5500 25th Avenue Northwest.
