City Calvary Chapel in Shoreline was again the drop-off center for the Samaritans Purse Operation Christmas Child.

Volunteers pack the shoeboxes in shipping containers

This organization sends over five million shoeboxes full of toys, school supplies, health items to children in need in more than 160 countries around the world each year.

The project mobilizes 100,000 volunteers in the U.S. and City Calvary collected 1347 boxes this year from the Shoreline area and beyond.

They load the containers into a truck
for transport to California, where
they are shipped out

We trucked them to Arlington to be sent to California to be processed before their trip to Southeast Asian countries. Boxes collected on the East Coast are sent to European and African nations.
