It's a great opportunity to give a gift to a child who may not receive one this Christmas. Operation Christmas Child is continuing to collect shoeboxes for kids all around the world.
"Operation Christmas Child is well underway," shared Jillian Ursu, Logistics Coordinator. "We have boxes that have already started coming in. We have 100 already in from the area."

Collection week runs from November 12th-18th.
"That's when all the shoeboxes will really start coming in."
She added that there are a lot of organizations throughout the southeast who collect boxes together.
"There are lots of groups, there are churches, there are schools that pack. And then there are also some businesses in the area that also pack shoeboxes."
The truck will arrive in Estevan on Sunday, November 18th and then head to the distribution centre.
"It will stop here and then make a stop in Weyburn and pick up more boxes there. It will go to Regina first before it heads off in an even bigger truck and goes off to Calgary. And then it will get dispersed to all the different countries that they're going to."
Empty shoeboxes can be picked up at the Estevan Alliance Church on King Street and packed boxes can be dropped off there as well. More information along with a list of what types of items can and cannot be packed is available there as well.
