Immanuel Baptist Church in El Dorado is taking part in Operation Christmas Child- a program started by Billy Graham's son Franklin Graham to help children all over the world by providing them shoe boxes filled with hygiene products, school supplies, candy and toys for Christmas.
"There just used to bring hope and joy to children. It lets them know that there is somebody who cares about them and there's a God in Heaven who loves them."
Immanuel Baptist Church is hoping to fill 38 thousand boxes to be shipped out. So far they have shipped out 12, 000.
Program officials say they will be taking supplies for the boxes until November 19th.
