Shoe boxes for needy children


Thousands of shoe boxes....all for needy children.

That was the scene this morning in Niles for Operation Christmas Child. Each year they send thousands of shoe boxes filled with gifts and school supplies for kids all around the world.

Organizers say it's a great feeling to touch so many.  Many of the boxes will go to needy children in such places like Africa.

"A friend of ours was in Uganda last year and a little girl opened her box, she goes through it and holds up three pencils and she says, I'm rich, I can go to school for three years," says Charlie Jones an organizer.
