Operation Christmas Child is back for another season.
It's a campaign where a shoe box is filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items and sent to children in poverty-stricken countries around the world.
Local coordinator Carolyn Winik says the gifts will be going to some specific areas.
This year the boxes will be sent to countries in South America, Central America, Africa and the Ukraine.
