Last year, gifts from the U.S. and 10 other countries were hand-delivered to more than 7.6 million children. Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts transcend all barriers—language, cultural, geographical and political—to give hurting children joy and hope. Since 1993, 46 million shoebox gifts have been hand delivered to needy children in more than 120 countries on six continents. Picture are Col. Alvin Taylor (L) and Buck Sgt. D.J.
