DE PERE, Wis. - A De Pere church collected more than 8,000 boxes for Operation Christmas Child this year.
Good Samaritans dropped off donations to Life Church in De Pere over the last few weeks.
The organization helps people around the world during the holiday season. The goal is to try and fill up 12 million shoe boxes worldwide with toys and gifts for kids in need.
"I've been doing Operation Christmas Child for the last 12 years, and its my biggest passion, I absolutely love it," said Michelle Blackman.
Semi trucks were loaded in De Pere Monday night and will be shipped out Tuesday.
