Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) -- Care and giving from the F-M community is about to be felt all over the world.

It's the final collection day at Triumph Lutheran in Moorhead for Operation Christmas Child. People filled shoe boxes with school supplies, toys, necessity items and a friend note.

The boxes get shipped all over the world to children suffering from disaster, disease, war, famine or poverty.

Terry Golling, a volunteer for operation Christmas child, says, "just to see how much care and love people put into these boxes many people will write letters or they'll put a family picture in there it's just amazing to see their outpouring of love for a child they don't even know."

The group had a goal of 10-thousand boxes, by this evening they were well over 11-thousand.
