Operation Christmas Child happens this weekend in Leduc

It's a hands-on way for people to help struggling children in the developing world get items they desperately need.

On Saturday from 10am-4pm at the Leduc Rec Centre is hosting Operation Christmas Child at the Main Corridor by Fireplace.

They're inviting people to donate things like toys, hygiene products, and school supplies that will be delivered to kids living in desperate situations.

The initiative began in Wales in 1990 and has since become a worldwide project that has delivered shoebox gifts to over 157 million children in over 130 countries.  (JSL/THE ONE NEWS)
