ALABAMA (WIAT) — As we head into the Christmas season, one organization is making it their mission to bring a little holiday spirit to children who are living in desperate situations. It’s called ‘Operation Christmas Child.’

Volunteers are gathering shoe boxes filled with everything from toothpaste to toys! The boxes come from community members as well as area churches. Once filled, they are shipped to children all over the world.

Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization run by evangelist, Franklin Graham, is spearheading the project.
