Operation Christmas Child kicked off this week in Federal Way.

Donations of gift-filled shoeboxes will be collected 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 14-21 at Our Savior’s Baptist Church, 701 S. 320th St., Federal Way.

The shoeboxes are then shipped to children around the world. Suggested toys are small cars, balls, dolls, stuffed animals, light-up toys (with extra batteries) as well as school supplies, hygiene items, hard candies, clothing and toy jewelry. The age ranges are 2-4, 5-9 or 10-14, and each box is for either a boy or a girl. To donate, contact Betty Bjorklund at (253) 927-3030.
