Judy Buys, right, helps 9-year-olds Rebecca Boyd, center, the daughter of Robby and Karen Boyd, and Victoria Daily, the daughter of Dan and Miriam Daily, fill a shoebox with items for Operation Christmas Child at First Baptist Church. Through OCC, gift-filled shoeboxes are shipped to needy children across the world. The effort is sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian relief and evangelism organization led by Franklin Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. To contribute, take a shoebox filled with items such as small toys, school supplies and hygiene items to FBC’s Family Life Center Nov. 17-21. For information, call FBC at 601-636-2493 or visit www.samaritanspurse.org. (Katie Carter*The Vicksburg Post)
