With a computer or mobile device, anyone can go to samaritanspurse.org/occ and pack a personalized Operation Christmas Child shoebox gift. Baxter residents can select the age and gender of a child to help, shop through an online selection of gifts, "build" the shoebox, write a note of encouragement and upload a photo. This year these gifts will be added to those collected in nine countries so more than 11 million children can receive a personalized gift from people who want them to know they are loved and not forgotten.
