Mission: Fill, ship shoeboxes laden with gifts to disadvantaged children

Robin Richard, collections center coordinator for First Baptist Church of Morgan City, stands Tuesday in the church’s fellowship hall where hundreds of items have been collected for this year’s Operation Christmas Child project. Churches and ministries partner with Samaritan’s Purse International Relief to bring shoe boxes full of gifts to children around the world during the holiday season. Richard said First Baptist Church of Morgan City will have a packing party at 6 p.m. Nov 14. Anyone who would like to donate supplies can do so between Nov. 18 to 25. Those wanting to participate can pack a regular shoe box and include $7 for postage then drop off to the church. Types of items accepted include personal hygiene items, toys and school supplies. For more information, call 985-384-5920. (Photo by Courtney Darce)
