COLUMBIA, KY (Sun 22 Nov 2015, at 12:31pmCT) Operation Christmas Child may surpass last year's total of 2,802, today at the Wheet Hall Relay Center in Columbia; and, if as many boxes as came in Saturday, November 21, 2015, 394, comes in today, the center will surpass this year's goal of 3,000.

Operation Christmas Child closed out Saturday with 2,694 boxes, just 108 boxes short of the 2014 total and just 306 short of the 2015 goal of 3,000. Everyone can still help make it happen, whether they are repeat donors or making their first gift(s). The relay station at Wheet Hall by Church of the Nazarene, 1200 Jamestown Street, Columbia, KY is open this afternoon, Sunday, November 22, 2015 from 2pm-4pmCT.

There's plenty of time to run by the store, buy the items, and get them to the Relay Center before it closes.

After that time, there will be one last chance, Monday, November 23, 2015, 9am-11amCT, to do your part.
