Churches collecting stuffed shoeboxes
WRITTEN BY :   Eric Pierce

Two Downey churches are serving as official collection sites for Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind that helps fill shoeboxes with toys, school supplies, hygiene kits and notes of encouragement for needy kids around the world.

Gift-filled shoeboxes can be dropped off at either Calvary Chapel Downey or First Baptist Church of Downey through Nov. 25.

The shoeboxes will be delivered to needy children overseas.

For more information, call (800) 567-8580.
