FBC collects Christmas shoeboxes for children
Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan’s Purse, aims to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world – and Franklin County residents can be a part of it.
Next month, Russellville First Baptist Church on Jackson Avenue will be among 5,000 U.S. drop-off locations collecting shoebox gifts for children overseas during National Collection Week, Nov. 12-19. Shoeboxes can be filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items. FBC will accept donations during the following times:
- 12: 9 a.m. to noon
- 13: 4-6 p.m.
- 14: 3-5 p.m.
- 15: 9 a.m. to noon
- 16: 4-6 p.m.
- 17: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
- 18: 1-3 p.m.
- 19: 8-11 a.m.
