Church preparing shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child

ASHBURN, GA (WALB) -

A Turner County Church is getting ready for Operation Christmas Child.

The First Baptist Church of Ashburn will begin collecting shoe-box items for Christmas.

The church serves as a relay center and takes the shoe- boxes to Atlanta just in time for Christmas.

“The kids get the box but also they give them bible study at the time as they kids come back whether they are in the village, Africa or wherever they're at. They do a longer bible study with them,” said Jonathan Perry.

The church has participated in the event for seven years. The operation Christmas drop runs from November 17th through 24th. You can go to the church website at FBCAshburn.com for more info on the Operation Christmas Child.
