Grand Valley families and Kidzplex employees got together to celebrate the birthday of Jesus early by collecting shoe boxes.
These boxes are for Operation Christmas Child. They are filled with all types of trinkets that will be sent to children all over the world to help make Christmas a little brighter.
Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has hand-delivered more than 54-million shoe box gifts to needy children in almost 120 countries.
Collection of shoe boxes will take place between November 12Th and the 19Th at the Clifton Christian Church. The church is located at 615 I-70 Business Loop. Collection times are as follows: Monday through Friday from nine to five, Saturday from nine to four, and Sunday from one to four.
