Charlottesville residents and families are making a difference in the lives of more than 7,500 needy children this Christmas.

Volunteers with Operation Christmas Child have prepared more than 7,500 gifts filled with toys, school supplies, hygiene items and notes of encouragement.

Although local collection of the gifts is finished, the shoeboxes’ journey to children has just begun. Volunteers will be working in the coming weeks to prepare, package and transport the 7.2 million gifts collected in Charlottesville and across the United States to their final destination.

Charlottesville residents can still get involved by building a box online. Through an online tool, participants can conveniently send shoebox gifts to kids in some of the hardest-to-reach countries.
