With holiday supplies already covering the store shelves, El Paso individuals, families, churches and groups are working to make Christmas a reality for needy kids around the world by filling shoeboxes with toys, school supplies, hygiene items and notes of encouragement.

Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, is ramping up as El Paso residents prepare to collect thousands of gift-filled shoeboxes during National Collection Week (Nov. 18–25).

At these local collection sites in the El Paso area, anyone can drop off a gift-filled shoebox to send to a child overseas.

For many children, the shoebox gift will be the first gift they have ever received.
