    To a child who has nothing, a shoe box containing peppermints, flip flops and a painted wooden school bus, means they have something to smile about.

    Last year, 7.9 million shoeboxes were sent to children in 130 countries. Since Operation Christmas Child began in 1993, 69 million shoeboxes have been sent from the United States.

    For many of these children, who live in poverty, it’s the only gift they have ever received, said Dawn Arnold, who along with Nicky Power, head up the local effort to get each church and civic group in Harrison County involved.
