Adair residents have put on a whirlwind campaign packing joy into shoeboxes for children in need overseas, from all points in Adair County. It's been exciting, and we've recorded most of the drop-offs at Wheet Hall and now have them in a memory album of 2015 Operation Christmas Child in Adair County and will add to it as the event draws to what we hope will be a challenge met, 3,000 boxes from our Relay Station in Columbia!
With holiday supplies already covering the store shelves, individuals, families, churches and groups in and around Adair County have been and are still working to make Christmas a reality for kids in need around the world by filling shoeboxes with toys, school supplies, hygiene items and notes of encouragement. National collection week, observed in Columbia, KY, November 17-24, 2014 operating hours above, at the Columbia First Church of the Nazarene Wheet Fellowship Hall, 1200 Jamestown Street, Columbia, KY.
Anyone can drop off a gift-filled shoebox to send to a child overseas during the collection hours(See : Operation Christmas Child Schedule). Then, using whatever means necessary - trucks, trains, boats, bikes, and even elephants -the shoebox gifts will then be hand-delivered to children worldwide. For many children, this shoebox gift will be the first gift they have ever received. Operation Christmas Child has collected and delivered more than 113 million shoebox gifts to suffering children in more than 150 countries since 1993, and hopes to collect another 10 million gift-filled shoeboxes in 2014.
