Since 1970, 146 million children in over 100 countries have received shoeboxes filled with gifts.
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse and provides the gifts around the world.
Kevin Bade is a volunteer here in Milton.
He says the boxes are sent in times of conflict or natural disaster to provide some relief and joy to the children in the area.
Bade says it’s easy to get involved.
He says he has been involved for many years and got his children involved as well.
