From Janice Childers
Tyler Star News,
This is Janice Childers, Parkersburg Area Coordinator with Samaritan’s Purse project, Operation Christmas
Child. I am reaching out with some information about our upcoming county-wide effort to collect shoebox
gifts for children in need around the world.
On November 13, Middlebourne Baptist Church in Middlebourne, WV will serve for the first time as a dropoff
location collecting gift-filled shoeboxes for children in need around the world.
During the project’s National Collection Week (Nov. 13-20), this site will collect shoebox donations filled with
fun toys, school supplies and hygiene items for children living in poverty overseas.
Would you be interested in sharing this local news with your readers?
Please let me know if you would like to speak with a site coordinator or local project leader about this effort.
A full release is below my name. For a complete list of participating drop-off locations searchable by ZIP code,
