The multi-county Southern Utah area team for Operation Christmas Child will be open to receive gift-filled shoeboxes starting Nov. 13 at Community Church of Moab, located at 544 Mivida Drive.

During the project’s national collection week, which runs through Nov. 20, the church will collect shoebox donations filled with school supplies, hygiene items and fun toys for children living in poverty overseas. This year, team volunteers hope to contribute 4,500 shoebox gifts to reach children in need.

For more information call Donna Hofmann at 435-259-4505.
