IUKA – Iuka will hold its first collection of shoe box gifts for Operation Christmas Child this year with Iuka Baptist Church serving as a project site.
The goal is to gather more than 500 gift-filled shoe boxes from Nov. 15-22, said coordinator Pat Thorn.
Through Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project, Iuka residents are helping send shoe box gifts to more than 8 million children in 100 countries.
Donors may also make monetary gifts using an EZ Give donation form online at www.samaritanspurse.org.
