Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes still collectable

Local News

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KFQX) — The project partners with local churches across the globe where each box is packed with a bundle of basic needs and a Christmas toy for girls and boys. More than 9 million boxes have been delivered to kids in need since the first collection week in 1993.

The Western Slope team has a goal to have at least 9 thousand boxes packed for Christmas. Individuals, families, and groups still have time to transform empty shoeboxes into fun gifts.

“We’d love to have you come and join us in this goal of showing God’s love to these children in need,” Susan O’Connor invites, “You can either do it by build a box online getting a regular shoebox and putting it together or coming to a drop off location with your items and you can pack a box right there.”

These Christmas gifts can be turned in between now and November 22.

Here’s a list of drop-off locations (with curbside delivery) along with packing parties happening this week:
