With the help of local volunteers, the site will be brimming with festively wrapped shoe boxes full of gifts. Through Operation Christmas Child, the world's largest Christmas project. Norwalk residents are helping send shoe box gifts this year to more than eight mil- lion children in 100 countries suffering from natural disaster, war, terrorism, dis- ease, famine and poverty. From Norwalk, the shoe box gifts will be sorted and sent using whatever means necessary-sea containers, trucks, trains, airplanes, boats, cam- els, even dog sleds-to reach suffering children around the world. Operation Christmas Child uses tracking technology that allows donors to "fol- low your box" to the destination country where it will be hand-delivered to a child in need. To register shoe box gifts and find out what country they are delivered to, use the EZ Give donation f6rm found at www.samaritanspurse.org. Residents may fill shoe boxes with school supplies, toys, necessity items, hard candy and a letter of encouragement. Step-by-step shoe box packing instructions are available at www.samaritanspurse.org.
