This month, locations in the Fox Valley area will serve as collection sites for Operation Christmas Child -- the world's largest Christmas project of its kind. The annual Samaritan's Purse project is a favorite of many local residents, families, churches and groups who spread joy to millions of children around the world by filling shoeboxes with a "Wow!" item -- like a doll or soccer ball -- other fun toys, school supplies, hygiene items and notes of encouragement.
