Craig Collection Site Open to Receive Gift-Filled Shoe Boxes

This holiday season, Craig residents are working to brighten the lives of millions of needy children around the world. Right now, volunteers are preparing for the collection of 500 gift-filled shoe boxes—Craig's target contribution to the world's largest Christmas project of its kind, Operation Christmas Child.

Nov. 12 – 19, Calvary Baptist Church in Craig will be bustling with activity as hundreds of shoe boxes packed full of goodies for needy kids overseas are dropped off by local individuals and families.

Anyone can drop off a packed shoe box at the Craig-area collection site (address and hours below). Then, using whatever means necessary—trucks, trains, boats, bikes and even elephants—the shoe box gifts will be hand-delivered to hurting children in 100 countries around the world.
