|Parish youth pack shoe boxes with love|
In Franklin Parish homes, businesses, schools, and churches, people are piling up shoe boxes…filled not with shoes, but toys, school supplies and necessity items, lovingly selected for a child in need.
Franklin Parish kids are participating in Operation Christmas Child, the world's largest Christmas project of its kind, to make a statement to needy children worldwide: "You are not forgotten!"
Operation Christmas Child uses simple gift-filled shoe boxes to let hurting children know that they are loved. Kids, families, groups, businesses and schools pack and wrap empty shoe box gifts with items most people take for granted, including toothpaste, toys, pencils, and drop them off the collection site at Baskin Baptist Church.
