Operation Christmas Child

November 19, 2013 

Mackenzie Rodewald, 4, carries a shoebox packed with Christmas gifts for children around the world at Bradenton's First Baptist Church Monday. Donations from individuals, local churches and businesses get packed into age and gender appropriate boxes then packed into cartons which will head to Atlanta, then to countries around the world, sometimes arriving at their final destination after being transported on camels or elephants.
